Seven hundred bills have been intro- 
duced, four days of the session only 
remain; one hundered bills have reached 
the Ooveroor; the important measures 
are still in the hands of the committles; 

have as a whole made a record. Kletsoh- 
ka and Ficker, howarer are the talking 
members among them. Both are men 
thoroughly in earnest and when they 
■peak always make good points. Gletsch- 
ka has a good deal of fun in him and 
does not lail to bring down the House. 
DosdoU has made himself quite prom 
inent aleo by efforts at retrenchment 
and ijform. He first tried to get 
through a constitutional amendment 
limiting sewons to thirty days That 
failed when he tried one for a session 
once in fire years. That wis rejected 
and the last ward from him he was pre

The House rail joad committee Satur- 
day reported a substitute for the Senate 
rail road bill. Both were ordered prin- 
ted and made the general order for to- 
day at2i P. M The Senate will not 
recede trom iu action. We must take 
its measure or nothing. The House 
may insist on ite substitute or the pet 
schemes of Child and Craniall for kil- 
ling off competition. If it does the laws 
will stand as now; » bill can not go I 
through the Senate with the objection- 
able features uri;ed by Child. The 
warehouse bill was recommended to pass 
by the committee last night; it may pass 
lO day but then it goes to the Senate 
where it is liable to fail (vt lack of lime. 
The joint committee on taxes repor- 
ted their bill reymag tb« tax and assess- 
ment laws wa8re*d the sec- 
undtime and the bill is now in committee 
of the whole. It may get through to d .y. 
The liberty of conscience bill, thanks 
to the efforts of Judge Brown, (sarcas- 
ticly speaking,) may fail, had he let it 
alone it would have passed as introduced 
in the Senate, as desired by the people 
most interested, but he had the effon- 
lery to get up and relate a pretended con- 
vernation with Bishop Grace wh(Hn he 
reported as being entirely satisft-d with 
the bill aa he proposed to amend 
so the vital part of the bill wai stricken 
out. This caused delay, the bill was 
referred to a special committee headed 
by Mr. Demry of VVabaasha and it wfti 
reported back substantially as intro- 
duced in the Senate, a long contest folr 
lowed, the amendments were adopted 
and the bill was made the special order 
for 3 P. M. to day, subsequently the 
rail road bill was maie the special or- 
der for SH P M. ind the liberty of 
conscience matter will go over. It is 
duubiful il it can be passed -inder sus- 
pension, of the rules, and may be killed 
by thetJrangera in order to give them 
time to blow about some fancied wrong 
the farmers labor undef, meanwhile the 
nefarious practice in our State institu- 
tions will be continued, Catholics will 
continue to be insulted by books Uodu- 
cing them being placed in the hands of 
their children and by the labor of of- 
ficers and teachers who attempt to proa - 
elyte them. 

The bill authoriiing the return of 
certain lunds beloogicg to Carver now 
in the hands of the State Auditor has 
Itised the House, also the bill organ i- 
».ug an independont school district. 
The bill allowing oertoin towns to 
issue bonds to con neat your lakes with 
Mianetonka by canal may fail for want 
of lime. The bill for the drawing of 
lake Minntrista (correct name of lake 
Rep.) introduced early in the session 
was killed because it waa so badly drawn 
as to defeat its object. A proper bill 
could^have been put through. It pro- 
vided that the lake might be drained 
unless some one objected, if any objec- 
tion was made by any party interested 
the whole thing fell to the ground. 

Yout delegates have been attentive 
to their duties particulary Col. Baxter 
and Mr. Denny, who have made a good 
record. Mr. Harrison has been dis- 
posed to vote 00 and assert his indepeu 
dence. He has acted with the majority 
of the delegates making harmoniously 
with them Mr. Truwe, however hae 
been very quiet, being so diffident that 
he has hardly dared to assert himself.

failing because he would not rise acd

A BrideKroom's D«sp«raiion. 

A young man who had agreed to mar- 
ry at Mattoon, Indiana, on the last day 
of the year, narrowly escaped disappoint 
ing his bride. How it happened, and 
how he triumphed over seeming des- 
perate fate, is thus told by the Terre 
Haute Express: "Mounting the early 
train he reached Paris, but there, m an 
evil moment, he hft the train to go a- 
round the corner and get a cigar. He 
stayed too long, and the train went off. 
What was he to do now ? The ceremony 
was to take place precisely at two o'clock, 
and if he did not get there in time there 
would be a fearful row. 80 in default 
of a better plan, he sUrted off walking, 
thinking to himself how he could roan 
age to get there on time. While engag- 
ed in these reflections, a hand car came 
along, propelled by three itout section 
hands. Hailing the trio, be was allowed 
to gel aboard and take a hand at the 
motive power of the open coach. He 
worked himself into a sweat, and fina ly, 
when about three miles from Mattorn 
the men took their car off the track and 
went to work, refm^ing, either f )r love or 
money, to go further Out of this di- 
lemma the youth found his woy by en- 
gaging a mule of an old farmer who liv- 
ed near. There was no saddle in the 
stable which he would allow to go with 
the beast, and therefore the young man 
was obliged to go in bareback. When 
he arrived at the house the clock had 
stroek three, and the en'-ire party was 
in consternation as he rode up to the 
door doth legs wrapped around that 
mule's body, slashing him with a club at 
every jump, and followed in his career 
by half the boys in town."

Mueller and John Hess to prove that he j^^ ^ 
is a fiist class surgeon. John Funk, 
Henry Gehl, Edwsrd Goetze, Christ Ed- 
cr, Geo Gruber and hundreds of others 
will stand up for him as a physician 
every time, The Germans would not 
have said a word if one of the first men- 
tioned doctors had been appointed, why 
cannot the French, the Irish and the 
Americans be contented now ! Must it 
follow, that because Dr. Haas is a poor 
man that he is a poor physician ! As a 
poor man he knows how the p.>or feel. 
I? there any objection to him because 
be is a honwephatic physician ? You 
should remember that he is not the only 
homoephatic physician, and that millions 
do not want any other medicine than 
that given by such a physician. An 
old saying is, that "by their fruit you 
shall judge them," which is very appli- 
cable to the doctors, whether they be 
Germans or any other countrymen. 

In answer to the complaint that the 
County Board is wasting the peoples 
money, let us remind you of one thing. 

Four years ago, when Mr. Barthel 
and Mr, Wessbecher entered upon their 
duty as Commrs,, county orders weie 
worth 75 ct«. on the dollar ; to-day you 
can get a dollar greenback for a dollar 
county order. And that in spite of the 
enormous expense the oiunty had to 
piovidefor, as for instance $5000 for 
the court h:>u33, $9000 in the Woertz 
case, $4000 for the poor farm etc Will 
th« finances of the county be in such a 
condition when your term will have ex- 
pired, Mr. Griffin ? I^t us wait and 
see, Mr. Carver correspondent, and then 
you may say "amen !"

Statistics of the Crops. 

The National Crop Itoimrler pubhahca eeti- 
niates in relation to the percentage of the hay 
and potatoo crops of 1873 in producers- 
hands on February Ist, in the Statca of Ilh- 
nois, Io«-«, Kansas, Minnesota, Ohio and Wis- 
consin. The following is an extract of the 
mam features presented ; The States named 
produced latjt year over 9,CO0,000 tons of hay, 
of which there wia on hand February Ist a 
little over IS per cent., or about 4,500,000 tons. 
Illinois retains the lightest percentage, a trifle 
le£S than 45; and Wisconsin the heaviest, 
nearly 52 per cent. 

Of Iristi. prititocs, the states above men- 
tioned proiUtced in 1873, some 23,500,000 
bushels. The amount now on hand approxi- 
mates 10.000,000 bushels, or about 41 percent. 
Thereia'ive proiortiou on hand in the sev- 
eral states varies considerably, running as low 
as 28 per cent, in Minnesota, aud reaching 
66 S per cent, in Kansas. 

The averaj;o price of wheat and potatoes in 
some of the states, relatively considered, are

In the neighborhood of Rochester 
there is a small and ferlile manor, 
which waB purchased some years ago, 
by a young gentleniao ot lurgo fortune, 
whom we shall call Mr. Warner. 

Mr. Waruer hftd Been so much of the 
world that he w:is by no means inclined 
to follow the general pursuits of men. 
The scenes of dissipation which Oxford 
exhibited had driven him thence with 
a kind of disgust, and he sought a re- 
treat in the country, where be might 
live contented with himself and in har- 
mony with those around him. 

One afternoon during the tirst har- 
vet-t of his being there, he observed a 
girl, about eighteen years of age, com- 
ingin at the gate of the field with a 
small basket in her hand. He went to 
meet her, fiinoyiug her bu.siueBS was 
with him ; and as he drew near her he 
was astoniBhed with her beauty and 
modesty. She blushed and curtseyed ; 
aud when he asked where she was go- 
ing, she told him to her father, who 
was in the field, and to whom she was 
carrying some refreshment. Many 
questions follow>»d, in answer to which 
Mr. Warner learned that ber father, 
whose name was Jones, had once pos- 
sessed lan<is amounting to £2011 a year, 
but that losses, misfortumw, aud other 
accidents, had fallen heavily npon him, 
and obliped him to rent a little cottage 
on Mr. Waruer*8 manor. 

On returning home, the thoughts of 
Mr. Warner were engrrssed with the 
fair Mary Jones. From his housekeep- 
er, Mrs. Groves, he learned that she 
had been educated at a genteel board- 
ing school : and.that, during her fath- 
er's prosperity, many young farmers 
and other gentlemen bad paid their 
addresses to her ; but that, on a change 
of his oondition, some of them forsook 
her— which conduct bhe met with the 
utmost fortitude. 

This was suflScient for Mr. Warner. 
It riveted his aflfcctions, and he deter- 
mined to make proposals tn her father. 
In his interview with him, he said: " I 
have sent for you. Mr. Jones, to ask 
your opinion in an afi'air of some im- 
portance " 

" Anything that I can do, sir !" 
'♦ Nay ; I ask it of you— not as a 
servant, but as a friend. You have a 
daughter, Mr. Jones f" 
" I have, sir." 

" That daughter I yesterday con- 
versed with and I confess to you that 
she made a vory sfrong impression 
upon me I am not used to ctremony, 
and shall therefore tell you plainly that 
I have no motive but the grutificatiou 
of an honorable affection ; and if your 
daughter can think me worthy of being 
herhusbantl, I shiil'. think myself made 
happy by her acceptar.ce of me." 

" Sir, forgive me — she is poor, and 
unworthy your attention ; you cannot 
mean it — indeed you cannot." 

•' I know she has not riches to recom- 
mend her; but she has virtues that 
would add a grace to nobility." 

The good man shed a tear of thank- 
fulness, but it was followed by another 
of concern. 

•'I am afraid," ho said, " to t«ll you 
of her situation, but I know she never 
will be yours. But I will eeud her in 
to you, and you will peihaps learn it 
from herself." 

He then went into another room, and 
soon Mi%ry came out, pule, trembling 
and dejected. Mr. Warnei- endeavored 
to remove her fears by telling ber he 
came to ask nothing but what she' 
might reasonably answer. He then 
repeated his offer. Mary heard him 
with attention, and then made this re- 
ply : 

"As I have no doubt, sir, of the sin- 
cerity of your declarations, I am the 
more concerned that I am not able to 
accept them ; and if tho opinion of 
the neighborhood bo true, that your 
humanity is eqnal to your station, you 
will not be offended with me if I ex- 
plain to you my present .situation. 
When my parents were in prosperity, 
there were many young men of the 
neighborhood— and some were superior 
to me in life^who were pleased to 
flatter mo for what they termed my 
beauty, and to declare their affection 
for me. I had then no inclination to 
leave my parents, aud was too young to 
enter the world. I therefore betigod 
them to desist from their pn^posals. 
There was one, however, whose return 
I could almost Lave wi»bod ; y.-^t I 
Buffered him to go." 

"Excuse my interruption," said Mr. 
Warner; "may I beg to know his 

" It is young Murray, hir, the son of 
one of your tenants. He took me at 
my word, and came no more ; aud j 
endeavored to forget him. About this 
time my father's aflairs took an un- 
favorable turn ; he disposed of his 
farm and retired to his cottage. The 
insincerity of men's protestations now 
became sufficiently evident to me, and 
I learnt a severe but an iustrtictive 
lesson. Some months passed in a state 
of uneasiness ; when, one day, as I 
was walking towards the valley by the 
waterside, I met poor Murray, whom I 
had not seen but at a distance since I 
lefused his addresses. At first he 
would have avoided me, but seeming 
to recollect hiuiself he came to me. 
Some indifferent conversation passed, 
when he renewed his former subjoct, 
and addressed me in teims which I be- 
lieve I shall never forget. 

* You must exci'se me, Mary,' said 
hr, * if I now begin a subject which you 
once forbade me to think of. 1 have 
told you in the most serious and sol- 
emn manner how much I esteem and 
love you ; aud though you have once 
rejected the offer I would make you, I 
cannot be happy without again repeat- 
ing it. The situation of the affairs of 
your family has given me much anx- 
iety ; and. Heaven knows, had 
it been in my power, I would have 
eased you of every burden. But I am 
not a favorite of fortune, and all that I 
can now offer vou is an honest, faithful 
heart, that will leave nothing untried 
that may make you happy.' 

Much conversation of this kind he 
went on with. I confess I listened to 
him with pleaetue ; and really there 

was so much openness and honesty in 
his manner, that I felt a prejudice in 
his favor, and ooald not but assent to 
a renewal of our acquaintance. We see 
each other every day, and only wait 
until our cironmstanoes enable us to 
combat the cares of life together. I 
see him always busied in some useful 
and worthy employment ; and so ob- 
serving 18 he of whatever may promote 
our mutual interest, that I should be 
ungrateful indeed not to return so sin- 
cere a youth's affection. This, sir, is 
my sttiry ; and I should not have pre- 
sumed to have troubled you with it, 
but from the hope that you would not 
attribute my refusal of your goodness 
to any want of respect, but to its real 
motive— an affectionate esteem for Mr. 
Murrav's son." 

Having so said, she was about to re- 
tire, when Mr. Warner called her 
back, and told her he was charmed 
with her ingeniousness, and could not 
refuse any assistance that it was in his 
power to bestow. He then desired 
them to send for young Murray; and 
as Mary was conducting him along, 
Mr. Warner, in company with Jones 
and his wife, went out to meet him. 
The generous Squire took the hands of 
the two lovers, and joining them in the 
presence of the old people, told them 
that he was then making a sacrifice of 
his own heart, but was glad, neverthe- 
less, that he could by that means add 
to the happiness of two deserving 
yonng persons. 

He told them to let the marriage 
take place immediately; that he would 
give away the old man's daughter, and 
would present her with one hundred 
puundn to begin the world with. The 
young man prayed heaven to pour its 
blessings on their indulgent master ; 
tho mother was hajjpy in her turn ; 
their labor was suspended ; the mar- 
riage speedily took place ; and Mr. 
Waruer confessed that it was the hap- 
piest day he ever spenj in his life. 

Kanaka Simplicity and Hospitality. 

A recent letter-writer in Honoltilu 
says : " In traveling about these 
islands the observer is struck with the 
simplicity and generosity of the Ha- 
waiian people. It seems a pity that 
such a race of people should perish. 
A man may journey from one end of 
the archipelago to the other in open 
day or in the midnight darkness, and 
lie'is as secure as in his own house. A 
foreigner never thinks of carrying fire- 
arms, for there is no one to molest 
him. He never goes hungry, for what- 
ever tho Hawaiian has, whether poi, 
taro or fish, is shared with the stran- 
ger. When they were a wealthy and 
powerful people, when almost every 
foot of land was cultivated, aud there 
were from 300,000 to 400,000 inhabit- 
ants, they killed fat hogs for their 
guests; but those halcyon days are 
nearly passed, because in nine cases 
out of ten they are too poor to afford 
that Inxury. But the aloha (love to 
you) 18 as hearty as ever. And heiring 
this aloha and seeing the miserable 
surroundings are contrasts indeed. 
The surroundings, generally speaking, 
are poverty-spricken in the extreme. 
Tho majority of those who meet you 
and greet you are but the wrecks of a 
people healthy and powerful in their 
barbaric state, but diseased and help- 
less in the civilization brought to their 
doors. But even to this day, like an 
oasis in the desert, thero are now and 
then families to be found whose blood 
is untainted with the poison which has 
nearly decimated the Hawaiian people. 
This 'is especially true of the chiefs and 
chiefesses, some of whom are splendid 
specimens in physique, princely-look ^ 
ing men and queenly -looking women." 

A Mran^e Weitdinir- (inest. 

From the Dsoton (Ud.) Journal. 

At Zion, Cecil county, Md., last 
week, a fashionable wedding was cele- 
brated, and the house of the bride was 
crowded with the friends of the happy 
couplcjcomposed of the youth, beauty, 
and wealth of the county. Suddenly, 
in the midst of the marriage ceremony, 
a fluttering noise was heard at an open 
window, and in flew a good sized 
pheasant, which lighted upon the car- 
pet about the middle of the room. Af- 
ter calmly eyeing the astonished guests 
a few moments, the bird flew out of 
the window again and disappeared. 
Tho circumstance is a very curious one, 
and has puzzled those who witnessed 
it not a little. Pheasants are very 
scarce in this locality, and are very 
wild and timid,so as to make it almost 
impossible to believe that one would 
thus deliberately fly into a room full 
of people. The bride r.nd groom and 
their friends are therefore undecided 
whether to regard the occurrence as a 
presage of coming good or an omen of 
impending evil. 

It has often been stated that silic- 
ious infusorial earth is a poor con 
ductor of heat, but it is only recently 
tliat any direct researches have been 
made in that regard. It was found 
that during the time it took to melt 
100 parts of ice in a cylinder surround- 
ed by infusorial earth, there waa 
melted 235 parti which had been fiur- 
rounned with an equal thicknesea of 
dry garden earth. Moist earth gave 
still more unfavorable results. With 
coal ashes 142 parts were melted ; tan 
bark and sawdust allowed about 100

An Hour IM thr Grand Central Depot 
in (Vc^T Yurk. 

Letter to the Troy Tunes. 
The signal-office is a little room at 
the northern entrance of tho depot, 
about thirty feet above the pavement. 
It is reached by a narrow passage-way 
from the west side, and when you get 
into it you see a sight which made 
Jones go into an nnmistakable surprise. 
Looking down the depot there was 
a spac(! ol more than 600 feet extent 
by 200 feet breadth, covered with an 
iron roof and lighted from the top. 
Trains of oars were coming aud goiug 
incessantly, but no confusion was per- 
ceptible, and everything, as my friend 
said, " went on like clock-work." 


in service here, relieving each other 
during a tour of duty, which extends 
from 5 A. M. to 11 at night, their mo- 
tions being regulated by a large and 
costly clock. The gentleman in charge 
received us very politely, but before 
we had tiardlv thanked him we heard 
the sharp and rapid ring of a bell over- 
head. It was marked " Ninety-sixth 
to Seventy- fifth street." "You see," 
said the opentor, "there is a train 
coming in, and it wants to know if we 
are ready for it " "But how does it 
ring that bell ? " said Jones. " By 
electricity," was the reply. " This is 
Hull's patent, which works like a 
charm." In a few minutes 
another bell rang. It was marked 
"Sixty first to Fifty-sixth street. "Ihe 
train 'now reports itnelf again," said 
the operator, " aud this renews notice 
either to prepare for it or to signal it 
to stop." He touclies a telegraph ma- 
chine, and then said: "This throws 
up the signal to come in," and sure 
enough, in a few minutes the train ar- 
rived. One hundred and forty trains 
arrive aud depart in a day, including 
the Central-Hudson, the Harlem, and 
the New Haven roads, and hence the 
signal service is one of incessant ac- 
tivity. The operator then infoimed us 
that each road has 


of different keys, all of which were rung 
by him by means of electricity. Thre« 
started passenger trains, and one 
ordered out the cars as soon as emptied. 
"You see," said he, " this train which 
has just come in. Tho passengers are 
gone, and I want to know if the bag- 
gage is taken out." He touched a stop 
and rang a beil (as he sail) 600 feet 
distant. In a moment a bell overhead 
struck twice. "Baggage is out," he 
said; "otherwise he would have struck 
once, and I would have waited. I must 
order the train out. Do you see that 
locomotive just ahead? Weil, now, 
see it move." He touched a stop and 
I saw the letter Z -displaived at a win- 
dow in a fcide building. "He 
hears a hell ring, also," said the opera 
tor. The engine backed down and 
hitched to the empty train and the Z 
disappeared. " I shall now send him 
out," said the operator, as 1 e touched 
another stop, and the empty train at 
once moved forward and left the sta- 
tion. The letters X Y Z (1 may add 
parenthetically) desipnate the locomo- 
tives of the Harlem, Hudson River and 
New Haven road.s, and are the sigtials 
to back down aud connect with trains. 
"I am now about to send out a pas- 
senger train."' continued the operator, 
"a half hour ago I struck twice to 
open the doors and let the passenger? 
pass from the sitting room to the cars. 
Now I shall soon close that very door, 
hut fir»t I must stop checking bag-

The Scientific American contains the 
following description of a novel and 
simple electric light: "Dr. Geissler, 
of Bonn, Germany, whose name is in 
separably associated with some of the 
most beautiful experiments that can be 
formed by the agency of electricity, 
makes an electrical vacuum tube that 
may be lighted without either induc- 
tion coil or frictioual machine. It con- 
sists of a tube an inch or bo in diame- 
ter, filled with air aa dry as can bo ob- 
tained, and hermetically sealed after 
the introduction of an exhausted tube. 
If this outward tube be rubbed with a 
piece of flannel, or any of the furs 
used in exciting the electrophoru% 
the inner tube will be illuminated with 
flashes of mellow light. The light is faint 
at first, but gradually becomes brighter 
aud softer. It is momentary in aura- 
tion ; but, if the tube be rapidly fric- 
tioned, an optical delusion will render 
it continuous. If the operator have 
at his ditposal a piece of vulonnite, 
previously excited, he may, after in- 
ducing signs of electrical excitement 
within the tube, entirely dispenKO with 
the flannel or fur. This will be found 
to minister very much to his personal 
ease and comfort. He may continue 
the experiments, and with enhanced 
effect, by moving the sheet of vulcanite 
rapidly up and doF^n at a slight dis- 
tance from the tube. This beautiful 
phenome non is an effeCt ^t__indnction. 

A NUMBER of prominent citizens of

said he, " tho next trunk that conies

more and she is off. Here goes the

one passes in after this. Now I say ' all 
aboard,' (a touch,) and we hear the 
distant voice of the conductor echoing 
through the vaulted roof. Now it 
moves," (another touch,) aud the 
rumbling movement was immediately 
perceptible, and in a few moments the 
train left the station. As the cars go 
up the road they signal their progress 
by ringing bells in tho same office until 
tliey have got through the city streets, 
and thus give assurance of a clear 
track for ail that may follow. The sta 
tion will contain twelve trains of thir- 
teen cars each, and by means of this 
wonderful system they are all managed 
with dispateh aud safety. 

A Now Hampshire Hero. 

From the Boston Journal. 
There is a true hero living at North 
Boscawen, N. H., aud his name is Jon- 
athan Plummer. It will be remem- 
bered that in the summer of 1871 an 
old building at that place suddenly 
settled, and one corner of it swayed 
over on the railroad track. The pas- 
senger triiin was due in a few minutes, 
and this Mr. Plummer, a young and 
active trackman, discovering the dan- 
ger, promptly seized an ax and cut off 
a post of the building in order to swing 
the structure from the track. He 
accomplished his purpose, and en- 
deavored to leap from his dangerous 
position, but was crushed and mangled 
in the ruins. In a moment the train, 
behind time, swept by with the passen- 
gers in safety. Tne brave section 
man was found to have been terribly 
injured in his spinal column and lower 
limbs, an<l to this ^ay has never been 
able to leave hip bed. The railroad 
company has furuibhed a cottage at 
North Boscawen for himself and wife, 
and continue him at half-pay upon the 
Bection-roll. Mr. Plummer is free from 
pain only a small part of the time, but

instead of the uncomely thing they 
call a waterfall, which is about as 
much like a waterfall aa a convas- 
covered ham is like a cata- 
ract. Taking the kind expression 
that is in the Emperor's face, and the 
gentleness that is iu his young daugh- 
ter's into consideration, I wondered if 
it -would not tax the Czar's firmness to 
the utmost to condemn a supplicating 
wretch to misery in the wastes of 
Siberia if she pleaded for him. Every 
time their eyes met, I saw m(>re and 
more what a power that weak, diffident 
school-girl could wield if she chose to 
do it. Many and many a time she 
might rule the autocrat of Russia, 
whose lightest word is law to seventy 
millions of people. She was only a 
girl, and she looked like a thousand 
others I have seen, but never a girl 
provoked such a novel and peculiar in-

'* A Bolanrt for an OiiTor." 

Roland and Oliver were two of the 
most famous in the lists of the Pala 
dins of Charlemagne. Roland, or Or- 
lando, is repreeentsd in the chronicles 
of these times as the nephew of that 
great monarch, and his adventurers 
are related in the fabulous chronicles 
of Tnrpin. The Epics of Boiardo (Or- 
lando Inamorati), and of Ariosto (Or- 
lando Furioso) also relate to him, 
while Sir Walter Scott in his "Mar- 
mion ' alludes to both in these lines : 

Oh ! for a blast cf that dread horn, 
On Fontarabian echoes bom, 

Whicii to King Charles did come ; 
When Roland brave and Ohver, 
And every p.iladin and pc«r, 

Ou Raricesvahes died. 

The exploits of these heroes of an- 
cient chivalry (the battle of Ronces- 
valles was lought A. D. 778) were ren- 
dered so extravagant by the old ro- 
mancers, that from this arose the say- 
ing, among our own plain and more 
prosaic ancestors, of giving one "a Ro- 
land lor an Oliver," to signify the 
matching of one incredible story of 
adventure with another.

the disease to the use of the so-called 
rolling towels. Such towels are gen 
erally found in our country hotels and 
the sleeping apartments of the working 
classes, and, being thus used by nearly 
every one, are made the carriers of one 
of the most dangerous, and, as regards 
its svmptoms, most troublesome dis- 
eases of the eye. I therefore would 
strongly recommend that the use of 
the roiling towel be abolished, for 
thereby we will discard one of the 
great instruments for the spread of 
such a dangerous disease of the eye, 
by which thousands of working men 
are annually deprived of their means 
of support.

The executors of the late Charles

and Chapter of Rochester, have just 
erected to his memory iu Rochester 
Cathedral a handsome brass tablet on 
the wall of the Southwest transept, un-

a local benefactor. Tho tablet records 
the dates of the birth and death of the 
deceased, that he is buried in West-

erected " to connect his meinoiy with 
the scenes in which hi.s cailiestand hia

THEAehantee war has brought to no- 
tice some of the queer practices of the 
natives. The King of Ashantee, de- 
siring one of his generals to return with 
his troops, sent Wy a messenger an 
"emblem of recall," consisting of a 
circle of beads. This order was disre- 
garded, and one more potent was sent 
by the irate king. Its form was that 
of a small shield made «f fibres of 
palm, and its signification waa well un- 
derstood by its recipient. In accord- 
ance with native usage, when a general 
will not return from war in accord 
with the message ol beads, the king 
takes this miniature shield and solemnly 
swears upon it that he will kill him- 
self if his order is again disobeyed. 
The troopB were filled with supersti- 
tious horror when the symbol was re- 
ceived, and the general no longer dis- 
obeyed the order to retreat.

Houssingault estiiniites that an ox weigh-

diem, will increase in weight about two 
pounds daily. According to Mr. Low, an 
ox wci'-chini? 770 pounds and consuming .^,- 
223 pounds of turnips per week, if he 
thrives, wil^ gam in the same time nearly a 
stone, fourteen pounds in weight. Allow- 
ing 100 pounds of hay worth 676 pounds ot 
turnip?, the increase i-s still about two

Mr Dubois says the quantity of green 
fodder consuuicd by an ox during the eight 
months wheu he is fattening, is equivalent 
to 6,600 pounds of dry hay. The average

strong enthusiasm. In some places thetr 
cultivation would be quite a success, in 
others a complete failure, until by expe- 
rience, they have overcome the difficultie- 
they have to encounter, as well as their sues 
cess. About twelve years since six acres 
were taken up that had been wet and cov- 
ered with bogs and brush ; it was drained, 
cleared of roots, and made smooth (soil dear 
peat) without sand ; the vines set in rows 
about two feet apart and kept clean for two 
or three years. They covered the ground 
with a rank growth of runners eight to 
twelve feot long, with a very few fruit buds. 
The following season th«y grow in the same 
way and formed a mat several Inches 
through : a lease of the ground was taken 
up for ten years on shares; during that 
time the average crop was not over 100 
bushels, except one year, when there was 
gathered about 500 busheh*; two years 
since it was not flowed, and nearly all the 
plants died except where a small part had 
been sanded the year previous and now 
plants set, which have done finely, and this 
year they are bearing a crop, tio much for 
the failure. 

A portion of these vines, with other por- 
tions of the ground has been covered with 
pure sand two or three inches thick, and 
new vines planted out, and have grown fine- 
ly, with a short bearing stem. Those vines 
this season are full of fruit. Pure sand 
should be used ; where there is any soil 
with it weeds and grass grow in<.re freely 
and largely increase the labor in keeping It 
clean. On this plot there have been a num- 
ber of varieties planted out, which are dis- 
tinct in their growth and habit. One that 
is most marked is Mansfield Creeper. It 
was found growing in Mansfield, Conn., 
and transplanted to a cranberry bed ; the 
original vine the next year was destroyed. 
In its new position it was found to be entire- 
ly different in its growth and habit from all 
other varieties— it seemed to creep over the 
ground and catch root at every point wnth 
great freedom, throwing out long 
from ten to fifteen feet, and bearing 


than a lean one. Others | to four inches in hoiglit.

Procure a long pole, about ten feet long 
and sis inches in diameter, and secure a 
tongue to the middle so as to form a large 
T. Th« tongue may be b(;lted or secured by 
mortice and tenon. After the tongue is 
made fast set it up in a peiTcndicular post- 
tion and bjro t\io-itich holes through the 
bead-piece ono foot apart. Now fill the 
holes with strong spreading bru.'<h, letting 
the brush extend bohind the cross head, 
from f.'ur to (.ix feet. The more brush one 
can fasten in the holes tho better. After 
the manure is sprdd with forks hitch a 
team to tho tou^'ue, place a board on the 
bru-h l^ohind tlio itobs head, and let tho 
driver stand on tho board as the spreader is 
driven across tho field back and forth liko a 
harrow, and the brush will then spread and 
grind the manurtj into tho ground ami pul- 
verize tlie lump* more perfectly th^n could

can spread an acre per hour of any kind of 
manure. Such a spreader will bo found 
useful in preparing land for seeding alter it 
has iHjon harrowed, (is it will crush the 
lumps, fill up tho d.-ad liarrows and leave 
the field like a garden bed. In lieu of a 
largo pole, a heavy slab or narrow p ank 
may lo employed for the spreader. The 
spreader nhould bo driven at a right angle to

A ■■'in-fT'pondeiit uf the New York Times 
says the dead furrow is such a nuisance 
when hayinsi and harvesting with our ma- 
chines that the question is often asked how 
we may get rid of them. I should say the 
best way to be rid of them is not to have 
them at all, and this I find quite practica- 
ble in tho follo^vin^' way: I lay out my 
main farming laud into three lots for three 
years' course u( crops, each lot 160 by 26 
rods, and plow a lot as one land ; plant a 
few trees along the centre of tlie field for 
landmarks, and turn a back furrow to these, 
one year plowing the whole field as a back- 
furrow land, and the next time plowing 
around the field tlie other way, turning it 
back again, thus keeping it level, and never 
crossing a dead furrow, for by going around 
the field in the sarao way to harvest, when 
I get to tho back furrow or dead furrow the 
field is dene. With such lots, too, I save a 
great deal of travel to and from my work, 
tor each lot cooies to within a few rods of 
tho liouse, and in working the field either 
plowing or cultivating, or hoeing, or har- 
vesting, I go ai'ouud tho fiold, or tho length 
of it, and back, so I can commence work 
and lease off again near the barn. But if 
it it* necessary to plow a lot into Binallor 
lands, I avoid making abrupt back-furrows 
and dead- furrows in this way : Hun the 
plow vt ry .-^hallow, say three or four inches 
deep for tho first bout, back-furrowing to 
lay out the lind, and do not let the fur- 
rows lap over each other, but just come to- 
gether. Then gauge tho plow one and 
one-half inches deeper each bout until yeu 
obtain the depth you wish to plow t 'o field. 
Then, as you near tho place for the dead 
furrow, reverse the order and plow shallow- 
er each bout, making the l^nt furrow as thin 
aa you did the first one. This finishes the 
laud much > setter, for the last furrow slice 
being thinner and turning into tho deeper 
furrow of tho previous bout, makes it lay 
over very tlit, and leaves only a slight de- 
pression for tlie dead furrow. Or, if it is 
not a turf, I would leave eight or ten inches 
of tho middle, which will drag down and 
half fill the furrow. And in this way, too, 
it will te nearly level over the back furrows.

Cranberries of each variety vary in size,

Tho most successful culture of the cran- 
berry is on muck or peat, covered with pure 
sand two or three inches, or more, it neces- 
sary, to level the ground, with a perfect un- 
derdrain to bring the witor within ten or 
twelve inches of the surface. Another very 
important matter is to have an overflow un- 
der control, so as to let on or off in a very 
few hours. In case of drouth or worms, it 
can be flowed at once, while the vines are 
growing in flower or fruit; twentjr-four 
hours flow will not hurt thoin.— F. TROW-

From the Mew York Daily Qrtpblc. 
Mr. Orion, in his recent review of 
the report of the Postmaster General 
upon a governmental telegraph, makes 
three points : , i i 

1. That the plan for a postal tele- 
graph has been rejected bv Congress. 

2. That the goyernmental telegraphs 
abroad have been a constant drain up- 
on the public treasury. 

3 That the rates here are but little 
higher than abroad, while the telegraph 
is as freely nsed here as there. 

Two propositions for the transmis- 
Hiou of correspondence have been pre- 
Honted to Congress ; one by Mr. Cres- 
well, who favors a purely governmental 
system, with Hues purchased, owned, 
and operated by the PostoflSee Depart- 
ment. Ttis plan has never been ap- 
proved by any committee of Congress. 
The other is the postal telegraph sys- 
tem, advocated by Mr. Hubbard. 
This proposes to have telegraphic, like 
other correspondence, received and dis- 
tributed through the postoflSoe, and 
transmitted by telegraph between 
postal telegraph-offices, by paities 
tunning and operating tho lines, under 
contract with the Postoffioe Depart- 
ment, at rates fixed by Congress— 
about 33i per cent, less tha» those now 
charged. This plan was first recom- 
mended by Postmaster-General Ran- 
dall to Conprebs. In two different ses- 
ftions favorable reports accompanied by 
bil's have been made in the Senate. 
The Committee on Appropriations in 
the House, iuBtead of ignoring the 
matter, ns intimated by Mr. Qrton, 
made a report in its favor, one year 
ago. The bill was not reached in the 
House, nnd, t&erefore, was not acted 

upon. , , 

Mr. Orton says the telegraph 
has been a constant los? to the Euro- 
pean states, forgetting that abroad the 
solo object of the g«)vernments is not to 
make the rates high enough to realize 
profits for the stockholders of a pri 
vate corporation, but to make them 
go low that they shall barely pay the ex- 
peuse.s. With this end in view, fre- 
quent reductions in rates have been 
mauo, with the knowledge that after a 
year or two the increased business 
would more than compensate for 
any loss sustained at first. In Bel- 
giiim and Switzerland the telegraph 
has, not only all operating ex- 
penses, but the cost of construction. 
The latest statistics for the European 
states show that the receipts a little 
exceed the operating expenses. 

Mr. Orton arrives at a different re- 
sult by including the cost of construc- 
tion of new lines as a part of the 
operatinR expenses, although he -ex- 
cludea them when computing the ex- 
penses of his own business. Mr. 
Orton says the rates here are "as low 
an the av'eraRe vales in European coun- 
tries," and that the rates here aie fifty 
cents. His report for the year ended 
the 30th of June last, published in 
October, .shows that the average rate 
paid by the public for telegraphic 
messages for the year was sixty-seven 
cents. It has been somewhat reduced 
since then, and is now about sixty. 
Mr. Orton includes the dead-heads 
with tho paid messages, and so makes 
tho average appeal considerably less 
than it really i». The annual number 
of messages transmitted in Earope, by 
the latest returns we have, were 52,- 
400,OlX). Tho gioKS receipts were $19,- 
288,462, which gives the average rate 
at thirtv-six cents. The rates for in- 
land inessages average twenty-nine 
cents, one-half the rates charged by 
tho Western Union Telegraph Company. 
The use of the telegraph, in propor- 
tion to population, is greater abroad 
than with ns, and is increasing in 
Great Britain, Switzerland and Bel- 
gium much more rapidly than here, 
where it does not keep pace with other

Farm MTUIiiplrtrccs. 

Quite frequently, says xbe Ohio Farmer, 
it booomes necessary for a farmer to prac- 
tice the mechanical art a little in a way of 
repairs upon implements on account of there 
being no wagon or general repair shop in 
the neighborhood, and it is therefore well 
for him to study certain mechanical rules 
•which will very m ileriiliy aid him in tbe 
effort. As whipplotrces in-o frequently 
broken, wo will give a few hints concerning 
the manufacture of those articles. In lay- 
ing out a stick from which a whippletree is 
to be nuide, the size and kind of irons to 
be used upon it. should be the first consild- 
eraticn. If the draw iron is a clasp, the 
centre of the i»tiok need not be as large 
there as where a staple is put through the 
centre. Dress out the stick on two sides 
the whole length, and as thick as it is to be 
in the centre — from an inch and a half to an 
inch and three-<iuarter8 aio the common 
thicknesses for heavy whippletrees— then 
strike a line on one side through the centre 
from end to end ; lay out tho width in the 
rentre an<t at the ends according to the 
sizes of the irons ; draw two more lines 
from centre to ends then work off the sides, 
and the stick is ready to be rounded up. To 
do the rounding chamfer all the corners, 
planing them true, then with a draw-shave 
and file finish* to a true oval. Mev3r at- 
tempt to work out a whippletree with no 
other guide than the eye, for it will require 
a great expenditure of time, and be un- 
sightly when seen. The common lengths 
for vehicles is two feet ten inches ; plow 
whippletrees should not be more than 
twenty-six or thirty inches, or as short as 
they can be and not make the tugs chafe 
the horses' sides. Tough hickory is the most 
suitable timber for these implements ; white 
oak and ash are second best, but of what- 
ever kind, the wood should be thoroughly 
seaHoned. It, is a -■^ood plan to split out ma- 
terial from choice "timber and lay it up for 
future use. When seasoned, or nearly so.

German WA.smNa Fldid.— Dr. Quesne- 
ville, in the Monitor Scientifique, describes 
a modo of washing which has been widely 
adopted in Germany and Belgium. Ths 
operation consists in dissolving tw o pound-* 
of soap iu about three gallons of water as 
the hand can bear, and udding to this one 
table>poonful of turpentine and three of 
liquid ammonia ; tbe mixture must then be 
stirred and the linen steeped in it for three 
or four hours, taking care to cover up tha 
vessel containing them as nearly hermtical- 
Iv as possible. The clothes are afterward 
washed out and rinsetl in the usual way. 
The soap and water may be heated and used 
a second time, but in that case half a spoon- 
ful of turpentine and a tablespoonful of am- 
monia must then be added. Tho process is 
said to cause a great economy of time, labor 
and fuel. The linen scarcely suffers at all, 
as there is little necessity for rubbing, and 
its cleanliness and color are perfect. Tbe 
ammonia a ad turpentine, although their de- 
tersive action is great, have no injurious ef 
feet upon tbe Unen ; and while tho former 
evaporates immediately, tho smell of the 
latter is said to disappear entirely during 
the drying of tbe clothes. 

Correct Wat to Sweep a Carpet.— 
There are three ways to sweep a r^irpet — 
one right and two wrong ways. One wrong 
way is to hold the broom nearly in front if 
the oj)erator, with tbe handle inclined back- 
ward toward him, then press down as a for- 
ward thrust is given and thus heave the 
heavier dirt way across the room while the 
light particles aro sent whirling about, cov- 
ering as it settles, every article of furniture. 
Another wrong way to sweep a carpst is to 
move the broom forward with a heavy, 
drawing stroke, by which the material to be 
removed is pressed into tho carpet rather 
than worked gently along on the surface. 
If either of these wrong ways is adopted, 
tho broom will wear out the carpet more 
than it is worn by the < ocupants of the 
dweirmtr. When a sweeper collects a dust- 
pan half full of tho nap of tho carpet every 
time it is swept, a new one will soon be re- 
quired. , 

The right way to sweep is to incline the 
handle a little forward, then give a light 
drawing stroke, allowing the broom to scarc«- 
ly touch the carpet Not one-half the 
weight of the broom should be allowed to 
press on the rarpet as the dirt is moved for- 
ward. Let the dirt be moved and rolled 
lightly. If a generous quant ty of tea- 
groands, small bits of wet paper, or clean 
and wet sawdust can be spread over the car- 
pet before the sweeping is commenced, all 
the fine dirt will adhere to the wet materi- 
als. By using a good broom, havitig a long 
elastic brush, touching the carpet lightly, it 
will scarcely require the strength of a child 
to sweep a large parlor in a few minutes. 
Scarcely one housekeeper in fifty under- 
stands now to sweep a carpet correctly. —

A Breathing Cave. 

In the range of mountains in West- 
ern North Carolina, known as the 
«• Fox Range," a most singular pheno- 
menon exists. It is a " breathing 
cave." In the summer months a cur- 
rent of air comes from it so strongly 
that a person can't walk against it, 
while in winter the suction is just as 
great. The cool air from the mountain 
in the summer is felt for miles, in a 
direct line from the mouth of the cave. 
At times a most unpleasant odor is 
emitted upon the current, froin dead 
carcasses of animals sucked in and 
killed by its violence. The loss of 
cattle and stock in that section in 
winter is accounted for in this way 
They range too near the mouth of the 
cave, and tho current carries them in. 
At times, when the change from in- 
halation to exhalation begins, the air 
is filled with various hairs of animals; 
not unfrequcntlv bones and whole car- 
casses arc found miles from the place. 
Tho air has been known to change 
materially iu temperature during ex- 
halation, from quite oool to unpleasant- 
ly hot, withering vegetation within 
icach, and accompanied by a terrible 
roaring, gurgling sound, as a pot boil 
ing. It is unaccounted for by scientific 
men who have examined it, though no 
exploration can take place. It is 
feared by many that a volcanic erup- 
tion may break forth there some time. 
Such thinp^ have occurred in places as

Fresh Air for the senate. 

Tber* is a letter in the Scientific 
American from a Scotchman, upon the 
pulwject of the ventilation of the Senate 
chamber at Washington, which was so 
imperfect that a new, expensive and 
elaborate set of machinery has been 
introduced, with the suggestion, more- 
over, that fresh air be brought from 
the park, 220 feet distant. The writer 
characterizes the invention as one of 
th'ttje useless ones made by theoretic 
Savons to assist nature. " All that is 
strictly required,' he says, "is an 
entrance for fresh air below, and an 
exit for air above." What he writes is 
applicable to all public buildings; 
scatter the inlets upon the floor by 
various methods, simple and unpro- 
ductive of draughts, so that for the 
I Senate ah amber there should be a total 
I area of eight or ten feet of inlet ; a 
hole in the roof equal to two square 
feet for 1,200 persons, two more for 
lights, and two for heat would be sufli 
cient outlet. "A hinged skybght is 
as good as anything else," he says, 
"as a cistern of water will be emptied 
if anv sort of holt bo driven through 
tho bottom, so will a crowded hall be 
refreshed if any sort of hole is driven 
through the ro of." 

A SUBURBAN minister applied to a 
ticket agent on one of the railroads for 
a "clergyman's ticket," and on the 
official expressing a doubt as to his 
clerical character, exclaimed, "If you

you one of my sermons!" The agent 
passed over the ticket, but did not in- 
sist upon the proof. 

Upon the "outer wall " of a female

An interesting question 
geography is that as to the transn irt 
of seeds by ocean currents, and in 
other ways independent of human 
agency. M. Thuret has been experi- 
menting on this in Antibes. Having 
tried 251 different species, ho knows of 
only two kinds of bare seed which are 
capable of floating, Maurandia and 
Phormitim. A long immersion in sea- 
water docH not destroy the vitality of 
seeds. Out of 24 species irinoersed 
more than a year, at least 3 germinated 
alterwards ns vigorously as seeds kept 
quite dry. 

Mb. Galloway has called attention 
to the fact that if a Davy lamp be 
burning tranquilly in an explosive at- 
mosphere, the transmission of a sound- 
wave, produced by a slight explosion 
of gunpowder, is sufficient to cause 
the communication of flame from the 
lamp to the snrrounding atmosphere. 
Hitderto it has generally been assamed 
that the occurrence of a colliery explo- 
sion, alter firing a shot, is due to ac- 
tual communication of flame from the 
gunpowder to the firedamp, but Mr. 
Galloway's experiments show that it is 
much more likely that the explosion is 
brought about by the noise ot the shot 
being propagated through the galleries 
of the mine to the safety lam^). 

A CORRESPONDENT of the English IMa- 
chanic says that he has used the 
following 'recipe with the greatest 
success for tho cementing of iron rail- 
ing tops, iron gratings or stoves, etc., 
and with such effect as to resist the 
blows of the sledge-hammer: Take 
equal parts of sulphur and white lead, 
with about a sixth of borax ; incor- 
porate the three so as to form one 
homogeneous mass. When going to 
apply it, wet it with strong sulphuric 
acid and place a thin layer of it between 
the two pieces of iron, which should 
then be pressed together. In five days 
it will be perfectly dry. all traces of 
the cement having vanished, and the 
iron will have the appearance of hav- 
ing been welded together. 

The "Photographic News" says that 
a curious and important discovery has 
been made by Dr. Vogel during the 
last few weeks. It consists in making 
tne non-actinic rays under certain cir^ 
cumstances actinic. " I have found," 
he says, " that bodies which absorb the 
yellow rays of the spectrum make 
bromide of silver sensitive to the yellow 
rays. In like manner I find bodies 
which abscjrb the red ray or the spectum 
make bromide of silver sensitive to the 
red rays. For example, by the addition 
of corallin— which absorbs the yellow 
ray— to a bromide of silver film, it be- 
comes as sensitive to the yellow rays as 
to the blue ray." This is one of the 
most important and interesting obser 
vatious in connection with actino 
chemistry which has been made for 
several years. 

Carbolic acid turns out to bo a 
deadly poison to snakes, a few drops 
being sufficient to cause the almost in- 
stant death of the much dreaded cobra. 
It has been proposed to supply the in- 
habitants of India with largv amounts 
of carbolic soap ; the idea being that 
as soon as the soap gets into general 
use theoobra will find it almost certain 
death to bite any one, and will soon 
come to regard tliat amusement in the 
light of suicide, and consequently will 
seek some other little game with which 
to while away his leisure hours. 

Messrs. Dewab anp Dittmab have 
undertaken to determine the vapor 
density of potassium experimentally. 
So far they nave not been completely 
successful, their method needing per- 
fecting, and several corrections requir- 
ing to be added. They have decided, 
however, that the vapor density cannot 
be more than forty-five times that of 
hydrogen. As the question previously 
lay between thirty-nine and seventy- 
eight, their experiment may be said tfl 
have settled it in favor of thiity-nine. 

A Keotiicky Mirage. 

Paducah is ten miles on an air-line 
from Metropolift, and the bend in the 
nver between the places makes it im- 
possible to see any one of those places 
from the other. Yet the people of 
Metropolis sawPaduoah very distinctly 
the other day^ if the following, from 
the Metropolis Journal of last week, 
may be relied upon: "A most remark- 
able phenomenon was witnessed yes- 
terday morning by some of the citi- 
zens of this plaee. Directly after 
sunrise a dark bank of clouds lay close 
to the horizon in the direction of Padu- 
cah, and just above this dark embank- 
ment, mirroied in a clear and serene 
deep blue sky, the city of Paducah ap- 
peared, with all its spires,, hmses, 
streets, wharfs, &o., clearly visible. 
The mirage appeared about forty de 
greos above the horizon. At the time 
the beholder could see three steam- 
boats at the wharf, the Tennessee 
River, the tow-heade, and in fact, the 
entire city ; all appearifife as natural as 
life, except that everything appeared 
magnified to twice the natural size." 
A gentleman who came down on the 
Fisk verified the appearance so far as 
the steamboats were concerned. This 
and one other are the only instances of 
the appearance of the mirage in this 
section that we have ever heard of.— 
Hickman (Ky.) Courier. 

Modern Medical Discovert. — It is 
claimed that disease, with a few excep- 
tions, has been conquered by the re 
search and intellect of enlightened 
men ; and yet a noted professor of New 
York admits that "of all sciences, 
medicine is the most uncertain," and 
that " thousands are annually slaugh- 
tered in the sick room." Certain 
"schools" of medicine are in exist- 
ence, one of which " makes the patient 
Dl," in order to claim a cure ; and an- 
other administers " sugar-coated bread 
pills," relying upon nature to effect 
her own cures. Dr. J. Walker, of 
California, an old and respected physi 
cian, tried both modes of treatment and 
both failed. He then appealed to na- 
ture's curative — herbs ; and now enjoys 
rugged health. He has given the ben- 
efit of his discovery to the world, in the 
shape of Vuoeoab BrrrEBS, and since 
its introduction has sold a quantity 
almost large enough to make a small 
harbor, or to float the "Great East<jrn.'' 
Its curative properties are attested by 
gratcfal thousands ~C >m. 

Jeff Davis says he could kill Foote 
at the first fire ;"but will he do it ?

Dr. J. Walker's California Vin 
pffar Bitters are a purely Vegetable 
lueparation^made chiefly from tke na 
jve herbs found on the lower ranges of 
:be Sie-ra Nevada mountains of Califor- 
lia, t)^ J medicinal properties of which 
ire e:.fcracted therefrom without the use 
of Alcohol. The question is almost 
iaily asked, "What is tlio cause cf tho 
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit- 
ters t" Our answer is, that they remove 
the cause of disease, and the patient re- 
covers his health. They are the great 
blood purifier and a life-giving principle, 
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator 
of the system. Never before iu the 
history of the world has a medicine been 
compounded posRessing tho remarkable 
qualities of Vinegar Bitters in healing the 
sick of every disease man is heir to. They

The most remarkable iuBtance of 
mortality In a sinRle family that prob 
ably ever occurred has taken place in 
Binghamton, N. Y. On Sunday, Dec. 
28th, Mr. and Mrs. Hoiliday cele- 
brated the sixty fifth anniversary of 
their weddinj; at Downsville, Delaware 
county. At that time Birteen children 
of the family, of which Mr. Hoi- 
liday was tho eldest, were all living, 
and fourteen brothers and sisters of 
Mrs. Holiiday were also in good health 
and present at the anniversary. Since 
then the entire family, thirty— all, in 
fact, except Mr. and Mrs. Hoiliday-. 
have died.

>Vhat a Misplaced Comma Did. 

The comma (,) that little dot which 
is a very insignificant thing to the eje, 
Bometimea plays an important part in 
language. Though the rules for its use, 
like its relative8,are somewhat obscure, 
nevertheless its function in some cases 
is very clear and of considerable mo- 
ment, as has been discovered in a law 
of Congress passed in 1872. In tbe 
tarifif bill which went into effect that 
year there was a large addition to the 
free list, and among the articles added 
were ** fruit plants, tropical and semi- 
tropical," designed to encourage their 
importation and cultivation. But in 
the process of engrossing or transcrib- 
ing the bill to be officially printed, 
a comma was interpolated be- 
tween fruit and plants, where- 
by all fruits were put on the free 
list. The customs offiioers, if they 
•♦minded their p's ard q's," did not 
mind the comma, and went on collect- 
ing the duties. At length some lynx- 
eyed importer discovered the comma, 
and demanded that it should be recog- 
nized, and the customs officers had to 
stand on the order of Prosody and pass 
fruit free. The result has been that 
about 13,000 has been illegally col- 
lected through this interpolated com- 
ma, at which Uncle Sam will have to 
stop and count more than one, and re- 
fund. The Ways and Means Commit- 
tee will report a bill to expunge tlae 
comma, and thus remand fruit baok to 
the list of datable articles. Thia will 
prove a most expensive comma.

"dead" on the track near Walnut 

Ed Va:.lkt {Ifraid ; 

Strange it is, certainly, 
that the "honorable" (%)mmr. from Car- 
ver cannot f^et through his w^ol. what is 
HO plain to everybody else, vii ; That 
former acts of the (/ounty Coramr. can 
not be an eicuse for his pilferings in 
the shape of unlawful charges a^ain.<*t 
<he county. I chould b« happy tu see 
Mr. Oiiifiu point out the law, that al- 
lows l,'oiumrs. 15 cent* per folio fir wri- 
ting school district notices, they can "tn- 
ly chuige at the rate of $3 00 per diiy 
tor buch work, and then the cost in his 
ca>e of wri'ing such notices would am. 
ouiit to about $150 instead of $895. 
now there is a pUin steal of $6 75 As 
to the ballance of tte labor Mr Griffin 
says he performed, wp had to take his 
oath fur it, it would cost the county a 
pretty round sum, to send a committee 
out to watch Griffiii, when he roves ar- 
ound the ciiunty, ostensibly to view coun- 
ty paupers. &c. ]>ut as the steal is pro 
ven beyond a doubt in the matter of 
writing school dis'ric* notices, he must 
not blaiue the peoplH if they mistrust him 
in other matters. 

The charges Mr. GrifBn brings against 
nie. are in cuch a shape, that I must t:d. 
init, I cannot get them "through my 
wool." If your mentioning of my vot- 
ing for a ''ten thousand dollar steal" re- 
fers to my favoricg the propo.sition to re- 
•IcLin ths court houne. that bad been 
sold under mortgage foreclosure. I de- 
clare niy.^elf guilty, and my re-election 
show.* that my constituents were very 
well pleased with the position I took in 
that niatler. And as to the Tounty 
jihysii'ians salary Mr. Griffin has got 
the wrong ox by the horn, for the record 
of the proceedings of the board will show 
that I did not vote at all. and that Mr 
Griffio did, aud in favur of $450 too. 

Neither did I vote for allowing Mr. 
•inffin'n bill, suspecting at the time that 
there was a steal in it. Mr. Griffin, do 
you reiuenibor that ttiree years ago when 
you left the county board the county or- 
dcr;-: wore worth ? 75 cents on the dol ; and what are they worth now ? 
One dollar in county orders is worth to- 
day, one dollar in greenbacks. And 
durintr the last three years, the "said 
('ouutv Connors." paid about 5000 dol« 
lar vn the poor farm, and about $8000 
old court house bonds, about $9000 in 
the I'eter Woertz's case, aod sliil the 
county taxes arc in the samo proportion 
as before Mr. Grifliu please make a 
memorandum of that and let us see, how 
the county Onaaces will stand al the close 
of the next three yeurs. Good Bye.

WATEBTOwif, Marc)i 2d 1874. 

Many changes have taken place in 
our little village, and t^some no doubt 
painful ones, since my last writing. 
Mrs, Hopper mother of Mrs. C B. 
Ames, died at the residence of Dr. 
Ames Watertowii on the more ing of the 
20th inat after a protracted illuens. A 
large circle of friends and relations are 
left to mourn her loss. A kind and 
sympathizing mother, a confiding friend, 
a good chri.^tiao and a patient pufferer; 
she leaves behind (hat which is of more 
value than a princely fortune — a good 
name, and a life Worthy of imitatioL. — 

Now is done thy long day's work, 
Fold thy palms across thy breast. 
Fold thy arms, turn to thy rest. 

Mrs. GeotchmuQ mother of Mrs. E. 
Moers died at the residence of htsr Son- 
inlaw, Wutertown.on the evening of the 
19th iost. Having past twenty seven 
annual posts on the Western slope of 
half a century, life to her had become 
almost burdensome and death to her 
that longed perhaps, to go was sweet 
compared with longer life accompained 
with its necessary in.'onveniences, had 
her husband who died in April 1872 
lived till the following they de- 
signed celebrating the the fiftieth ani- 
versary of their wedding day. 

Mr. Merriman, teacher, ha.«8S0 near'.y 
recovered from his shor*, but severe 
illness, as to be able to resume his duties 
io school. 

A Ftit^tival gotten up sometime since 
for the benefit of Revd. Mr. Sparrow 
was an entire success, beside.s having a 
very plesant time, there was realized a-> 
bout fifty dollars cash, above necessary 
expenses. Miss, Bina Lewis and the 
Crawford Sisters contributing largely to 
the musical entertainment. 

Mr, Martin M. Ryan for whom a 
ball and gift enterprise was gotten up 
^ome time since realized a handsome lit- 
tle sum. Jerome Ball ot Delano, who 
drew the ten dollar cash prize, had the 
kindness to present the same to Mr. 
Ryan. An act certainly commendable. 
We are not informed as t j whom the par* 
ties were that drew the other prizes, but 
understand a portion of each of them 
was presented to Mr. Ryao, 

Eld^r Cobb of Minneapolis gave a 
Temperance lecture at our village a few 
eveniiigs since, which was largely atten- 
ded. 'J he Elder made some practioul 
hits, and were it not for certain circum- 
stances over which we lave no control. 
We should forever disoontiuuc relation- 
ship with Bacchus. 

Judge Sargent County Supt common 
schools, gave our village a flying visit 
recently looking after thet interests of 
the schools in this part of the County. 
The iudge is looking well, and seems to 
be much interested in his work. 

A Grange of Patrons of Hxsbandry, 
numberin>< thirty charier members was 
organized at this place on Saturday the 
14th inst. by Dist Deputy J. H. Thorn 
IS Esqr. of Young Aiutrica, The ♦bl-

While in cession the following resolu 
tion was adapted. Viz: Resolved — 
That while wj are opposed to all monop 
olies. Wo doio no way favor the crow 
ding and crushing out of the business 
and tradesmen of this or neighboring 
villages, as we coneider healthy and 
prosperous villages essential to prosper- 
ous farming communities. 

Present prospects would indicate that 
there would be a large meuiber.<ihip 
here, and while we would sincerely re- 
grot the building up ot the farminjc in- 
terests at the of men who hon. 
CMtly pursue otier vocations, yet from 
what little we know of the doings and 
workings ot the order. We are led to 
the conclusion thtt if the farmiug clas- 
ses are benefitted, the condition of all 
other branches of honest industry will 
be bettered in like proportion. 
Yours in baste.

TiiK FAitMKRS Mutual Fiuk 


A strong effort was made at the last 
"Cssion of the I^iegislature to break down, 
by hostile legislation, the above named 
association. The stock companies, ai- 
ded by a self constituted committee 
from the State Grange of the Patrons of 
Husbandry attempted to .«ecure the pus- 
sage of a law which would had it pas.scd. 
have greatly embarrissed this as.socia- 
tii'D, by compelling it to abandon the 
mutual plan upyn which it has thus far 
been operated; but the good sense of the 
legislature prevented them from accom- 
plishing tl.eir purpose. The result of 
the contest proves tho Farmers Aspocia- 
tion to t)e on a much more substantial 
basis than we had supposed. Its ene 
raies could not show a single instance 
where it hnd fnilcd to meet promptly 
every demand niatlc npon it for los^c^iby 
fire or otherwise, and it is evident from 
its present prosperous condition thul it has 
been steadily gaining ground ever siucc 
its organization . 

The fri-nils of Gen. John T. Averill 
assert thrit he h;i3 finally detprnieiicd to 
become a candidate hclore tlie Hopul'- 
lican District Convention, for re-nomi- 
nation to Congress. It is und:i stood

after passing the House was defeated in 
the Senate ; it was not entirely satisfac. 
tory but was con.sidcrcd better than 
none and wurihy of a trial for a year at 

All Night. 

The Legislatuae worked from 7)i* o'-

vast amount of business; at the latter 
hour an adjournment was had until 10 
o'clock whe» the members again met 
with heavy eyes and heads, and proceo

in boisterous sport. Rurle.Mjue bills, 
resolutioas itnd petitions were iutroduc- 
ed, songs were sung, speeches made and 
po( m."? lead. 

Thus at noon of Friday cltscd the

reported thit the beof contractor has stooped

The Aoheen War. 

A report haa reached London that a great 
buttle was tou},'ht at \ccrooinba, on Jiiuiiaiy 
Hi, btfWt en the foret-.s of Sir Ournt t Wol-eley 
and the A-hnotees. The engagement lasted a 
whole day, and closed witli no deciiled reeuli. 
The loss to the British army is given as ne«rly 
300, including 17 efficers. The loss sustained 
by the native allies i.i not known, but is be- 
lieved to be very heavy. The commuiieations 
of the llritiali forces with the roar are threat- 
ened. It is belifved that another largo force 
of Ashantces is approaching Cooiuassie from 
the southwest. ThoAshanfees entirely feur- 
rounded the iJnii.di :umv, but were eventually 
driven ofl, with great loss. Th'; principal war 
I liief of tho Ashanlces was killed. The king 
fins taken command of his army in person, 
and it was expected ho would renew tho 

All the London journals show, in their 
cditniials on the Ashantee news, the utmost 
jiiixieiy aa to tiic n suit. The Times and Tel- 
egraph attribute the failure of the pca-e ue- 
qotiatioos to the nncompromising determina- 
tion of tho Criti.,h ciiii,maiulet to enter L'oom- 
assie, an event which the king was willing to 
do j-nything to prevent. The (ilobe says if 
the news be true u great di-aster has befallen 
the llrilish arms ; and the orlv course left to 
Sir Garret Woleeley is to ert'uct a safw retreat 

to the COiht.

Hanging of RafTerty.

the story of whose repeut. d trials aud convic- 
tions for thc> murder of olhcor O'.Meara, of the 
Chi'ca-^o police f-ic ■, on the night ol th' 4th 
of August, 1^72, is faiiiiliar Io all, was hung in 
the Court Housu at Waukegan, betwein 12 
nod 1 o'clock on Fridav la!>t. His Irienus 
nia-lc every ftort to save him from the gal- 
lows, Iml without avail. The apparatus used

of the corridor lending to the court room, and

tho roiw wcro tuspeuded pieces of iron,

Weights and passed (l.'wn stairs to the corri-

The Temperance Movement. 

J HK ciu-ude a^;llll^t the ,.vil of intemper- 
ance is faxt assuming a definite shape, and 
promises to be of more importance, in a sen- 
national view, at hast, than was. at xirst an- 
ticipated. It 19 difficult to I ame a locality in 
w'dch the niovement Las not been inaugurated 
with various results in each ; but tho crnsa- 
dtra eeem to b.=» detei mined to bring the mat- 
ter to a snccessfiii is-ne, and are straining 
ever nerve to accomplish the pui poses aimed 
at. In isomo localities the seoflers are numer- 
oas, but ihose who really appear to have any 
inlercit ui tfie war arc in the ma- 
jority. At le.trtt it so appears from 
the latest accounts. lu a few places 
the crn^i:ll!ers aro subjected to persc- 
cuti'TS, iMit arc holding out with what might 
be termed Christiau fortitude, and are wil- 
ling to suffer almost any indignity if they can 
aid tho cause. Numerous cases of penitent 
rum-sellers are reported, and still, again, oth- 
ers arc reported who cannot, by any art 
koowu tu (Jio fnir crusaders, be prevailed 

upon to give up tlieir business, which they 
claim is a just and legal one. so long as they 
fultill the requirements oftbe law. The war 
has attracteil the attention of clergymen 
throughout the country, and numerous and 
varied are the opinions expressed. The 
Rer. Henry Ward Beecher expreefos 
the belief that this revival of religion in the 
I direction of temperance, under the auspices of 
women, by tho instrumentality of personal 
supplication with men and praver unto God, 
is indeed a phenomenon worthy of study and 
admiration. It is worthy of study by all who 
love to trace the operations of the human 
Aind in communities, aud it is worthy of more 
than admiration by those who believe m work- 
ing for the purification of man. Whatever 
may bo the circumstances aud conditions of 
the western women, their work is a noble one, 
and men idiould criticise their mistakes with 
leniency, and rejoice in tneir success with 
great joy, because tvery man should rejoice 
ill everything thai tends to pluck his lellow- 
mau from the burning. 

Johu B. Gough, the tcroperanco revivalist, 
has not as .vet ; taken any part in the present 
onslaught against the demon-destroyer, and 
from reports it is not likely that his voice will 
uol bo heard in public in regard to it. He haa 
however expreattd his opinion in r< gard to the 
present movement, and stated that he did not 
look with favor upon tho womeu iu their war 
upon run shops, and believed that little or no 
good would come of it. Ho considered Dio 
Lewis the first seneatioiu.sts of the age, and 
that he was engaged in leading tho present 
movement for nothing more than to gratify 
his ivrdent desire for Hensationalism. Mr. 
Gough said he did not approve of women go- 
ing fnroni^h tho streeta praying and sioging, 
and would not allow, under any couaidera- 
lion, his wito or nieces to engage id such an 

Never, in the history of any previous tem- 
perance wars, has such general interest been 
manifested, both by those who were against 
the trafiic and those who seek to avert the 
impending doom of the rum demon. People 
iu all sections of the country arc enlisted in 
the cau.-!e, and the result is watched with a 
great deal of anxiety.

What to do we couldn't tell, for we heard

The Bird of Gold. 

Upon a whitely-bloBsomed epray 

Chanted a golden bird, one day,— 

A strange, aweet bird, with rosy wings. 

Which only in the sunshine sings. 

Its voice rung as a spirit clear 

Might vibrate through a crystal sphere, 

Aud, when high hope its heart would stir. 

It swept the air, a conqueror I 

'Tia aileut now. No more, in sooth, 

Bjturns the go'den bird of youth ! 



The narrative of which I um about to 
write was told me one bleak cold night in 
a country parlor. It was one of those nights 
in midwinter when the wind swept over 
tho land, making everything tingle with its 
frost •- and keen i reath, that I was seated 
before a bla/ing fire, surround by a jolly 
half dozen bo\ s aud an old bachelor, Peter 
Green, about 48 years. 

It was just the night without to make 
those within enjoy u good story ; so each 
of us had to tell a favorite story, save Mr. 
Green, aud as he was a jolly story-teller, 
we wore somewhat surprised to hear him 
say : " 1 have no story that would inter- 
est you," so we had to find other entertain- 
ments for a while, when one of the boys 
told us to ask him how it happened that he 
hud never got married. So we did. 

"Well, gentlemen,'' he began, " it don't 
seem right lor me to tell how it happened, 
but as it's about myself, I don't care much. 
You see when I was young we had to walk 
as high as five miles to church and singing- 
school, which was our chief enjoyment. 
But this don't have anything to do with my 
not getting a wife, but 1 wanted to show 
}'ou that wc had some trouble them days in 
getting our sport. 

John Smith and I were like brotlers, or 
like "Mary aud her little lamb.'' Where 
one went tho other was sure to go. So we 
went to see two sisters, und as we were not 
the bdst of boys imagiuHblo tho old gentle- 
man took umbrage and wouldn't allow us 
to come near the house ; so we would t4ike 
the girls to the ond of the lane, and there 
we would take the final kiss. 

We soon got tirod of that sort of fun, and 
I told John, on our way to singing school 
one night, that I was going home with 
Sadie, and that I was going into tho house, 

He said the old man would "caue me," 
if I did. 

I told him I was going to risk it anyhow, 
como what wtmld. 

He said " he would risk it if I would,'' 
So home we went with the girls. 
When we got to the end of the lane I 
told the girls we proposed going all the 

"They looked at each other in a way I 
didn't like any too well, but they said the 
old folks would bo in bed, so they didn't 
care if we did. 

They wet e a little more surprised yet when 

I told them we thought of going in a while, 

but as all was quiet when we got to the 

ouse, we had no trouble in getting into the 


Then and there we had our first court, 
and I made up ray mind to ask Sadie to be 
be ray wife the next time I came ! 

It was now pa^t the turn of night, and 
we had four miles to walk, I told John we 
must be going. So we stepped out upon 
the porch, but just as wo did so, the sky 
was lit up by lightning, und a tremendous 
thunder peal rolled among tho mountain 
•-ides. Its echoes had not died out in the 
far off vales until tho rain began to pour 
from the garnered fullness of the pent-up 
clouds. We waited for it to stop until we 
were all sleepy, when tho girls aaid we 
shokdd go to bed in the little room at the 
head of the s'aii's which led out of the 
kitchen ; as their futher didn't get up early, 
we could be home before the old folks were 
up. So after bidding the girls a sweet good- 
night — and hugging them a little — and 
wishing them pleasant dreams, and promis- 
ing them to come back on next Saturday 
night, we started for bed. 

We didn't have far to go, as the bed sto<^ 
near the stairs J«»hu wa.-* soon in bed, but 
I was a little slow, and lull of curiosity, I 
set about to look around the room. 

At last I thought I would sit down on a 
ches». which was spread over with a nice 
whith cloth, while I drew off my boots. So 
down I sat, when stars of the east, I went 
plump into a custard pie ! 

I thought John would die laughing, for 
he said I had smashed that custard pie all 
to thunder, and the plate right in two. 

You see we had to be awful quiet so that 
the old gent should not hear us. 

1 was now ready to gt t in bod, so I put 
out the light and picked up my boots, 
thinking to put them iu a more convenient 
place, when down my one leg went through 
a pipe-hole, which had been covered with 
paper, up to my hip. 

Now one part of me was up stairs while 
the longest part of me was in the kithen. 

As my leg was very long it reached a 
shelf which was occupied by dishes, pans, 
coffee-pots, etc., turning it over wiUi a 
tremeadous c ash. 

The girls had not yet retired, and we 
could hear them laugh fit to kill themselves. 

I felt awful ashamed, and was scared un- 
til my heart was in my throat, for I ezpov • - 
ed the old man every moment. 

I extracted my leg from the confounded 
hole just in time, for the old woman looked 
into the kitchen from her nxim door, and 
asked, " what all that noise .vas about ?" 

The girls put her off the best they could, 
and I went to bed, while John was strang- 
ling himself under the bed clothes to keep 
from laughing aloud. 

We soon went off into the land of dreams, 
with the the hope of waking early. I wish 
I could tell you my dreams, but it would 
take me too long. One moment I would 
fancy myself by the side of Sadie, sipping 
nectar from her heaven-bedewed lips, and 
the next I would be flying from the old 
man, and he would be brandishing his cane 
above my head. 

This all came to an end by John giving 
me a kick. 

On waking up aud looking aroiwd I saw 

The Bnrned Funtcchnicon. at London. 

From the New York Sun, Feb. 19. 
The Royal Pantechnicon Company 
was organizod in 1863, and was similar 
to oar Trust Companies. The building 
itself was an i:a posing block, eight 
stories high, fronting Hyde Park, and 
in the immedi-ite neighborheod of the 
palatial residences of Baron Roth- 
schild, the Duke of Wellington, Sir 
Robert Peel, ai.d others. The front 
walls were of granite, elegantly sculp- 
tured. The building cost £1,000,000. 
The basement, which was lined with 
iron, was carefully guarded by watch- 
men ; while each safe had an iron 
grating before it. Here were locked 
up the valuable silver ware of the old 
Families ol England, who rarely used it 
except on state occasions. These 
priceless collections were carefully 
numbered, the Company giving bonds 
for their safe keeping, and charging 
according to the value of the property. 
The first floor was a magnificent art- 
gallery, in which were deposited the 
rarest pictures of the Turner, Rey- 
nolds, and other galleries. Persons 
going out of town also left their priyate 
collections of pictures hero for safe- 
keeping. Besides these there were 
glass cases filled with costly jewelry, 
and valuable collections of coins. Ad- 
mittance to the Pantechnicon could be 
obtained only from a depositor or a 
director. In the rear of the first floor 
were collections of eiiuipages, mostly 
of foreign make, which were considered 
so costly that the owners feared to trust 
them on their own premises. On the 
floors above, besides several art gal- 
leries and marbles, were endless collec- 
tions of costly furniture, requiring 
constant euro aud attention to keep in 
order. The Pantechnicon was also 
used for ihe safe-keeping of landed 
titles, mortgages and other valuable 
papers, the Company sometimes ad- 
vancing money on the collaterals de- 

Every day during the London season 
rows of carriages could be seen stand- 
ing in front of the building while their 
occupants were viewing the collections 
inside. It was said that the young 
aristocracy who visited the Pantchni- 
con were often shocked to find that 
mere shopkeepers possessed more 
wealth than themselves. 

The Company owned a large r.umbcr 
of vans and carts, and employed nearly 
a thousand persons. It also owned its 
own railroad cars, which were so con. 
structed that they could be run on to a 
a large six-horse truck, thus doing 
away with the necessity of unpacking. 
The Company was generally employ- 
ed by families to move their house- 
hold goods in all parts of the country. 
It had branch offices in all the princi- 
pal cities of Great Britain. The de- 
struction of the building will involve 
heavy losses of rare family plate and 
pictures. ^^^ 

A Few Fignres. 

Arithmeticians, who love the truth 
that figures always tell, may now sec 
what it cost the nation to build the 
Union Pacific Road, and what it cost 
the stockholders of the Credit Mobi-

Th€ Senate then proceeded to tbo considcrutlon of 
tho bill to provide for the ap|xiiutmi-ut of a com- 
misaion on the subject of the alcoholic liquor trafBc. 
At the ezplraUon of the morning hour the con- 
sider ition of the bill to equalize the dlutribution of 
currency was resumed. The debat'" lasted for eome 

time. Before aiijoummont the ( 'bsir laid before 

the Senate a message of the Prcsidont In relation 
to the centennial exhibition. 


Bills were reported, to amend the act of June lu, 
187'i, for tho restoration to mark«t of certain 
lands in Michigan ; lor the issuing and re- 
cording of commissions to postmasters appoint- 
ed by the President with the consent of the Senate ; 
to proride for a more complete oraanizAtion of the 
Htate Department, creatiug two new oflices, that of 
third assistant i-e<'retary of utate and of solicitor to 
the Department of State, with salaries of $3,600 re- 
spectively, aud abolishiug the olhce of examiner of 
claims ; and to amend the steamship passenger act 
in regard to the publication of U^ts. of eraigranls. 

The House then resumed consideration of the 

bill for the distribution of x'Ubllc documents. 

Thuhsdat, February 26. — A bill 

amendatory uf the fifteenth section of the act to 
revise, consolidate and amend the statutes of the 

post office department was pantfied. The naval 

appropriation bill was then taken up, the commit- 
tee anieudmenta concurred in, and the bill passed. 
The bill reduces the appropriation for drawing and 
Hngrnvine charts from $41,000 t" $»() ; provides 
for three aBsietaut oDservi-rs ai tne iTavui <.>boorva 
tory instead of two, and appropriates $15,UUJ for 
preparii^ and publishing The liaval Almanac, in- 
stead of $10,(1. II, and increases the appropriation 
for the equipment of vessels from $l,llo,0O0 to 
$1,2.">0,000 ; the provisi'ins for officers, seamen and 
marines is incre.ised from $l,110,oiO to $1,152,000 ; 
that for rep:iir8 aud prcsrrvutlon '^f '.joilcrs and ma- 
climery is increased from $l,'i00,<HKi to $l,^65,0()0. 
The contingent expenses of t'le Naval *cademv are 
fixed at $46,600, Instead of $3i\r00. Twenty thou- 
sand dollars are appropriated for 'he contingent 
expenses of the Mariue Corps, icstead of 

$lP,ooo. The bill to provide for the 

appointment of a commission in rcsfard to the • Ico- 
hoiic liquor traffic was tben iljgcussrd for a time, 
after which the Senate proceeded to the considera- 
tion of executive busineps. The army appropria- 
tion was next considered. As reported from com- 
luitiee, it makes a reduction of $5.S0,000 iu the 
appropriations for regular's supplies and incidental 
exiH-nses of tbo Quartrrmaster's Deparlmeut, and 
ot $218,000 in sundry other items. 


Spaiii>h Lore of Display* 
Eugene Pirtou, a Frenchman, in a 
book on Spain, says the Spaniards 
"have no taste for what the English 
call comfort, but they are passionately 
addicted to luxury of apparel, of the 
toilet, and of ostentations display. 
The object is diflerent, but tho pas 
sion is the same. The Spaniard who 
is without a shirt to his back will stalk 
about majestically iu a cloak which 
costs a couple of hundred pesos. 
Another, who cannot pay for his din- 
ner, wiil display on his waistcoat a 
magnificent golden chain. This taste 
ior the toilet," for the showy, for jew- 
els, for gilding, they push to the most 
extravagant extreme. The women are 
foremost in tliis respect, but the men 
do not lag far behind ; they wear gold 
chains of an absurd thickness, carved, 
and wrought, and adorned with pre- 
cious stones and triukets, until they 
blaze all over like a jeweler's shop." 

An example of the manner in which 
this tendency to display shows itself is 
given ii^th an incident that occurred 
to the artist whoso works illustrate 
the volume. He had ordered from a 
tailor in Malaga u pair ai leather 
breeches, such as are worn by the peas- 
ants of that province. "The tailor 
dwt^lt in a kind of dark, dim, and pes- 
tiferous closet ; ho was clothed like a 
beggar; his thin, half-starved children 
had nothing but rags nn their bodies ; 
his wife, an invalid, lay upon a pallet. 
Three days afterward into our friend's 
apartment entered a gentleman, ele- 
gantly clothed and curled, wearing a 
black great coat, varnished boots, and 
a felt hat a la mode. Our frit nd with 
difficulty recognized in this resplend- 
ent his tailor bringing home the 
breeches he had ordered. Here was a 
man who could scarcely provide his 
children with bread, marching through 

After passing a bill allowing the use of the unex 

pcudcd baiana« of the appropriations for lb* con- ^^ic town attired like a grandee."' 
struct ion of the branch mint at Han Franci-sco, the 
House resumed consideration of tho bill reviving 
the f ranking pri\ilrgc. A motion to lay on ihi? 
tal)lc was negatived, yeas 11m, navs HO ; also a mo- 
tlou to recons der tlie vote by which the mam ques- 
tion was orderrd, 126 to 41. An amendment au- 
tliorizing the PostmastiT-Oeneral to delay tho 
transmission of public documents wBenever the 
welfare of the service shall so require, was offered, 
and rejected by an overwhelming maiority. 
A vote was then taken on the substitute offered by 
Mr. Hale, of New York, to repeal ttie law which 
abolished the fraiikiuq; privilige. Tlie amendment 
was rejected— yeas M\ nays 197. Of tlio Wisconsin 
members, Mesisrf. Barln^r aud Kldridge voted aye.

Messrs. Barlxr, Kldridge, Hazeltou, Mc- 
Dill, Rusk, Sawyer, aud Williams, of Wis- 

cousin, vote I aye, aud Mr. Mitchell no. 

At the close of the roll-call, the vote l>elng very 
close, there was a good deal of excitement amone 
th" memberi", those who were in favor of the bill 
going around dibcus.sini; the que«tiou and canvass- 
ing for changes. The first chance was made by Mr. 
Todd, from no to aye. It was followed by a change 
on tlic part of Clark, of Missouri, while Hubbell and

A recent writer on the warming and 
ventilation of houses recommende 
what he calls '* double-grooved win- 
dows." it being much less expensive 
and equally efficacious. The sash for 
this purpose is made to receive two 
panes of glass to each opening instead 
of one, thus leaving a space of air be- 
tween, which serves as a barrier to the 
cooling effects of the external atmo- 
sphere. This method operates also as 
a protector in summer against the 
troublesome heat of the direct rays of 
the sun. For such a double-grooved 
window glazing good hard glass (poor 
in potash) must be selected, so that, 
especially in southern aspects, the rays 
of the sun may not decompose and 
render dull the facing sides of the 
panes, which, of course, cannot be 
cleaned. For this latter reason care 
must be taken in inserting the panes 
that the facing sides are clear and 
bright, and that'only dry air is enck sed 
between them. " Ice flowers," the 
writer adds, "never appear in such

Treasury to give Thomas Hilhouse, Assistant-Treae-

mint at San Francisco. — At the expiration of the 
mornmg hour the Hou^e Ijill in re- 
gard to the Centennial Exposition was taken 
up aud considiTcd. Mr. Sumner offered a sub- 
stitute for tho House bill, p^o^iding that the cele- 
bration of the one liandredtb aniiivereury of Amer-

actir. The arran cments shall be left in the bauds

and thit no money shall be appropriate'! from Ihe 
national treasury on account < f the celcbiatlon. — 
Without final action the Senate went into executive 
session, -ind afterward adjourned. 


A motion was entered by Mr. Tyner. to re-con- 
6id«r the vote of yesterday, by which Ihe bill reviv- 
ing the franking iirivilege waa rtjecteil. He said 
that his object was to move to re-couimit the bill to 
Ihe postofflce committee with instructions to report 
t)ack tho third section only, which relates to the 
free circulation of weekly newspapers in counties 
of publication, and the free exchange of uewspaiiers

drew this motion, saying that after thinking the 
matter over more fuUy, and taking counncl of

Renewal of tbe Oyster War. 

Iu an extra, issued Friday, the Cris- 
field (Md.) Leader relates the capture 
of a Maryland oyster boat by a Virginia 
tug, as follows : 

"While the schooner Lucy J. Stew- 
art, owned by Benj. F. Marsh, Capt. 
Hezekiah Brown, master, hailing from 
Crisfield, and having a Maryland 
license, was dredging on Great Rock, 
off Fox's Island buoy, in Tangier 
Sound, the Virginia tug Tredegar, com- 
manded by Capt. Orris Brown, swooped 
down upon and conveyed her to Onan- 
cock or elsewhere as a prize. There 
was at the time a large fleet of Mary- 
land boats dredging within a hundred 
yards or so of the unfortunate craft, 
and, like her, experiencing no fear of 
capture. The Tredegar, the Virginia 
tug, was seen approaching, but no 
fears whatever were entertained by the 
bonts of molestation. The grount on 
which the capture was made is imme- 
diately on thti border, where Maryland 
biiatshave been habitually dredging 
with the assent of the Virginia au- 
thorities. No attempt to escape was 
made or thought of, and the seizure of 
the Lucy J. Stewart was the first inti- 
mation that the catching of oysters by 
Maryland vessels was desired to be 
prohibited at this rock." 

Carinir a Cold. 

A recent medical writer says : " Sleep 
whenever you can— anywhere you can 
get a chance ; the want of the age is 
sleep." This is not always safe to fol- 
low, as one of cur townsmen (says a co- 
temporary) knows to his sorrow. He 
wa3 recently afflicted with a bad cold, 
and to cure himself of it resorted to the 
remedy of putting his fe: t in hot water 
and drinking a tumblerful of strong 
whisky toddy, prescribed by an aged 
and respected friend of the family. 
Having got everything in order tor 
carrving out the prescription, he sat 
down by the fire, his feet immersed in 
warm water, and a tumbler of smoking 
toddy by his side. Tn this condition a 
sense of enjoyment stole over him as 
he sipped the exhilerating liquid, and 
fell asleep. His wife had gone to bed, 
and, on awakening about three o'clock 
in the morning, wondered why she was 
alone. Going down stairs she was hor- 
rified to find her liege lord asleep in 
his chair, the fire out, his feet still 
immersed in the water, over which a 
cake of ice was forming, and an empty 
tumbler on the chair beside him. His 
cold isn' t a bit better. 

Red Tape in Royal Marriages. 
Great is the bother of getting mar- 
ried when you are a royal Highness. 
Of course the marriage of the Sailor- 
Prince had to be entered in the regis-

and equally, of course, the country 
would all go to pieces and the founda- 
tions of the earth rock if that precious 
register recording the weddings of all 
the English Queens were to bo taken 
to a foreign land. Accordingly Dean 
Stanley was provided with a single leaf 
whereon to enter the marriage, which 
will be bound up in the register when 
it gets back from Russia, In order to 
go properly through the ceremony, the 
Dean was likewise obliged to carry 
with him the blue velvet-covered 
prayer-book used at the coronation of 
William IV., and another prayer-book 
which has been used at all the myal 
English marriages since that of George 
ni., except that of Victoria.

Turnip Flavor in Butter. 

Turnips fed to milch cons impart, 
as is well known, a disagreeable flavor 
to the milk.and if the milk is employed 
for butter-making the tiirmp fljivor is 
also carried to the butter. Vanous 
methods have irom time to time been 
eucReated for arre^tius or destroying 
this tiavor m the butttr male from 
turnip-fed cows, and cue of the most 
effitiient, we are informed, is that prac- 
ticed by the lush dairymen, ihis 
consists' iu mingling sour milk with 
the new or freshly drawn milk, ami 
then setting it aside to cream. By 
this procedure the sourness of the new 
milk is hasteuo.l, thereby preventing 
the flavor, which is greatly caused by 
allowing the milk to sour slowly. 

Tn many of the Irish dairies the 
whole milk is churned, as the biitter 
made from whole milk is considered 
to have a better color and flavor than 
bufter produced by churning cr. am. 
If the turnip flavor can thus be de- 
Btrnyed, as it is confidently assorted 
by those who tested the plan, it t- 
well worth knowing, and may prove of ! 
value to some of our dairymen who 
may have turnips to feed to cows in 
milk. Among some of the beat butter- 
dairymen of Ireland it is customary to 
cive cows grazing on pasture in sum- 
mer "a daily drink " which is composed 
of bean meal, crushed oats and bran- 
three and one half pounds to each 
cow— mixed with wrter. The "drink 
is said to have a very decided eflect on 
the milk and butter.— Yi'Mm^ ^tw

There ought to be broad fields of 
beans planted this year ; first, because 
thev are a largely paying crop, and 
second because there will be many an 
acre that was intended for wheat this 
year that will not be sown, and a bean 
rrop is just about the next thing in 
value to wheat, as a rich and nourish- 
ing food, that we can grow. A course 
food, perhaps, but very nutritious, and 
yet not so coarse but that many of

As a field crop they will yield from 
twenty to fifty bushels per acre, de- 
pending upon soil, season and culture. 
A dry, sandy soil is considered the 
best, but we have raised excellent 
crops on strong clay loams, l or a held 
crop, bush biaos are generally pre- 
ferred, and the salable are the 
white ones. As a market beau the little 
white is pre-eminent, though not pos- 
sessing as much richness as a variety 
known as the Early China, oval in 
shape, with a bright red eye ; they are 
earl V. productive, whether green or dry. 
Beans shoulil not be planted till all 
danger of frost is over, as they are 
very sensitive to its influence. Ihey 
can be sown broadcast, in drills oi in 
hills. They will bear covering det>per 
than almost any other seed of its size : 
inordinary, dry soil, three inches is 
not too deep. Beans shoula never be 
hoed when wet from rain or dew. Iry

RabbltM UnI»•*vin^ TrefK. 

Mr E. A. Bcihl, a well known horti- 
cidturist near Alton, 111., tells the 
Western Aprictilturist how he prevent- 
ed the dcprodatious of rabbits in his 

orchard: , , r •* 

Rabbits do i<ot at all times bark fruit 
trees, vet are apt to g( t iu the habit at 
almost any time, and to attack almost 
any kind of tree. They are, however, 
most apt to comme«ce their ugly tricks 
when the ground is covered with snow 
and frozen ; when one commence* he 
will teach others in u short time, just 
as cattle will le«rn from each other to 
browse on shrubw or plants on which 
they do not usually feed. If the rab- 
bit that d.ies the mischief is cauglit or 
killed, the others may not begin the 
practice. . , 

My practice now is to set trap.s for 
them during the winter, and to hunt 
them when I have time for the latter, 
and to have them served on the table, 
where they are quite aecep*^ \ble when 
properly prepared. I also keep close 
watch of my trees, and if I see that any 
of them are being barked, I cut an 
apple into thin slices and dose it with 
strychnine, and put it near the injured 
trees, and the next morning I usually 
find the rabbit or rabbits that 
been doing the mischief laid out near 
the scene of their depredations. 

ent of Hearth and Home gives the fol 
lowing directions for making a wedding 
cake • One pound brown sugar, one 
pound buUer, one pound flour, twelve 
ecKs, one cup molasses, six pounds 
Valencia raisins, three pounds cur- 
rants, two pounds citron, one ounce 
cinnamon, one ounce mace, one ounce 
cloves, one giU brandy-or you can 
use if you prefer, one gill whisky and 
ore gill lemon juice, and the grated 
rind of two lemons— two nutmegs ; add 
sufficient flour to dust the frnit. 

Having as a novice in cake-making 
been over and over again grievously 
tormented by insufficient directions as 
to the manner of putting ingredients 
together, we will not subject another to 
the same trial of patience, but give the 
mode of procedure so explicitly that 
the most inexperienced may work with 

confidence. l n ^„, 

Wash the currants and put them 
aside to dry. Pour boiling water upon 
the raisins, a few at a time, and take 
out the seeds-scalding the raisins 
eentiy facilitates the operation of seed- 
iujT. and in no way injures the fniit for 
cake Slice the citron thin, and do not 
leave the pieces too largo, or your cake 
will be likely to break apart when yon 
cut it. Chop the raisins pretty flne-- 
it is V,est n.t to put more than a quart 
in t^ie chopping-bowl at a time ; then 
mix them carefully with their propor- 
tion ot currants and citron, and lay 
them aside in a pan. When the frui 
is all mixed cream the butter, and add 
all of the spice as soon as y^u com- 
mence stirring in the sugar. Add the 
molasses by degrees with the sugar; 
if vou need more liquid to make it stir 
easily, add a portion of the liquor. 
Beat till very light. Beat the yolks 
and whiles of the eggs separately and 
very thoroughly; then add the yolks 
and what is left of fae liquor, and a 
little more than half of the flour; after 
that, the whites of the eggs and what 
remains of the flour, stirring but little. 
Lastly dust your fruit a little at a time, 
and mix it thoroughly with the cake. 
Have ready a large pau or three 
cood -sized bread tins, if you like bet- 
ter prepared in the following manner : 
Fit three papers carefully to your pan ; 
crease them thoroughly. Make a paste 
of equal parts of Graham and white 
our wet up with water The paste 
should be just stifl- enough to spread 
easily with a spoon. Place tho first 
paper in the pan, with the buttered 
Lide next the dish ; spread the paste 
evenly over the paper, leaving it a* 
thick as you wouUl roll pie-crust, in 
spreading the sides of the pan you will 
probably need to use a little of the 
paste to stick portions of the paper to 
the top of the pan to keep it from 
slipping out of place. Then press the 
second paper carefully into its place, 
with the butt(ued side awry from the 
paste, and lastly, fit in the third paper 
us you would into any bakmg-pan. 

Put in vour cake, being careful to 
press it closely into the edges of the 
pan ; place it In an oven of the same 
heat that you would use in baking 
bread ; keep up your fire so that i 
shall cool down very gradually. Wtien 
[the loaf lacks two shades of being 
brown enough- and that will probably 
bo between an hour and an hour and a 
half before it is time to take it out- 
grease a paper and put over it, 
spread with paste. When 
comes out of the oven, 
cover till nearly cold. , , .u 

Four hours will bake a loaf tha 
takes the whole recipe, and it is not too 
long when you make it >ot"^tl^ffe 
loaves ; anything smaller had better be 
taken out a few minutes sooner. 
Keep your cake in its cas«. 
This mode of baking has the advan- 
tage of never burning without most re- 
markable carelessness, and also that 
the cake is nice to use within a week 
from the time of biking. 

Las^ wealthy classes of our community 
-by servant girls and laborer s-who 
supply their regular contributioDS, 
insignificant separate, and not felt tjy 
their givers, but mighty in the aggre- 
gate, as we shall see. Why cannot the 
laboring children of this generation be 
equally wise in matters of temporal 
welfarc-that is to say. why can they 
not use their enormous aggregate cap- 
ital for their benefit, instead of being 
dependent upon the crumbs doled out, 
often at exorbitant rates of interest, 
by wealthy capitalists, or going 
through the' world with the impression 
that their only capital is their muscle^ 
which may fail them at any <ime, and 
UDon which they can never realize ? It 
was doubtless pondering upon some 
such questions as these that a German 
bv the name of Schultze Delitzsch hit 
UDon a practical idea. He saw that 
the laborer, like the labled rods, was 
financially w<:ak as an individual, but 
powerful enough for all his purposes 
as a member of a community. Ihat 
ability to labor, which is bo poor a se- 
curity in any one man's jasc, is, wl^gn 
a thousand of such men are associated 
on a sound basis, to use a translation 
of the German's lani^uage, "a perfectly 
eood negotiable commodity. 

Out of this reasoning came the peo- 
ple's banks of Germany. They are Tories 
formed by workingmeu alone. Each 
member subscribes f.r one shaie, 
which is all he is entitled to hold 
The price of each share is about *'-^^- 
It is paid on entering, or in monthly 
installments after outrawce-these in- 
stallments being as small in som.; cases 
as in cents. There is an entrance fee 
rancing from 75 cents to $1.50, paid in 
the same way. The profits of the bank 
are divided among the members m 
proportion to the amount each lias 
paid; and, until a share is fully paid 
for, the amount of the dividend upon 
it is credited in part payment, buita- 

btisiness is to make 
ceives a piffe article of white 
gar, of a quality suitable for coMumption.

Sugar is refined by two processes, the latter 
of which is coming much into favor. By

rropavrJUitm of Cholera. 

M. Tellit^r, one of the moht acute of 
French observers, adopts the tlieory 
of the propagation of cholera by invis 
ible germs conveyed in the air or in 
water. He places no great relianae 
upon the effect of antiseptics upon the 
air itself, their action being, to say the 
least, doubtful ; and, moreover, he 
considers the action of the germs una- 
voidably taken in respiration as com- 
paratively innocuous, because those 
taken into the lungs do not reach the 
intestines, and because such as are 
, thus swallowed, being taken as it were 
in small quantities at a time, the 
vitality of the system is 

1 able to resist their action, m like mari- 
I ner as it overcomes the action of poi- 
I son taken in insignificant doses. M. 
I Tellier thinks that it is by introduction 
I of the germs into the alimentary canal, 
have i where they find conditions altogether 
favorable for their rapid multiplication 
that the disease la 


many. It will be seen 
not only in consolidating and utilizing 
the means of laborers, but m making 
them a lever for securing their share ol 
tlie capital of the country. It makes 
the workingmcn as indepciulent, ac- 
cording to the means of their class 
(not themsclvi'8 individual ly), «« ""J 
other class of their countrymen. Why 
could not the plan be adopted with 
equal, or oven greater advantages, in 
the United States? Different regula- 
tions would undoubtedly be required, 
and extreme vigilance in guarding 
against abuses, particularly if the plan 
became popular ; but the pnuciple it- 
self seems of universal application, 
while the resources of capital awaiting 
its command are larger here than in 
any other country."

Obituary— Ex-Presldent Fillmore 

Millard Fillmore, Ex-Pre«deut of the United 
States died at hin home in Buffalo, on March 
8tb after a liuperiug illness of three or four 
weeks. Tlie following brief sketch of hie 
life will be found full of interest at this time : 
Millard Fillmoro was bom in Cayuga county. 
New York, in 1800. and was consequently about 
74 years of age at the time of lus death. In 
eaflv Ufe he did not enjoy even the ordinary 
school privileges, and it was only by the most 
industrious effort that he secured the legal 
knowledge which afterwards brought him into 
political prominence and resulted in his great 
popularity with the people of the whole coun- 
trj". He was apprenticed to a wool-carder in 
the vicinitv of Summer Hill, but did not com- 
plete his trade, and went to study law in the 
office of Judge Wood, who appreciated his nat- 
ural ability and gave him gratis all the oppor- 
tunitv pos'sible to qualify himself for the legal 
profession. FiUmore gla<lly accepted the posi- 
tion, and bv teaching obtained sufheient means 

• - - ■ • — --id lessen 

1821 he 

submit to arrest, and, drawing revolvers, com- 
pelled them to fly. A ijossee was afterwai^ 
summoned. One of the Carters surrendered, 
bnt the other was shot just as he was puUiug 
the trigger of liis pwtol on one of the posse 

A COLLISION between freight trains on the 
Tr.^^^n Wabash and Western Ilaih-oad, near 
BiS Creek!" salted in damage to the engine 
and freight cars. Two brakemen were senous- 

y injured. . . _. 

F D ALBEBTfio:*. a wheat buyer, has ab- 
sconded from: Bassett, Iowa, with $1,000 be 
longing to Baasett, HunUug 

& Co., of Mc- 

to partiallV defray his expenses and lessen 
the burden of his benefactor. In 
removed to Erie county, and began the prac- 
tice of the law at Buffalo after several years 
of Btudv. being admitted as an attorney m 
1827. as a comiselor of the State Supreme 
Court in 1829, and the subsequent year he 
formed a favorable connection with an experi- 
enced member of the bar. In 1829 he com- 
menced his political career, being elected a 
member of the lower house of the State Legis- 
lattire. At the close of the session ho resumed 
his practice but was soon again called upon by 
the people and fdled all positions of trust to 
the satisfaction of his constitutents. lu 1847 
he was chosen Comptroller of the State of 
New York, and the following year ho received 
the still higher honor of being elected Vice 
rresident of the United States on the Whig 
ticket with Gen. Tavlor at the head. The sud- 
den death of the latter in Julyi849. made Mr. 
FiUmore the Chief Magistrate of the uatiou. 
When ho was installed the discussion of tne 
slaverv question was at its height, and the re- 
lations between the North and South were 
threatening. In his messages he supported 
the fugitive slave law and recommended a 
protective tariff. Daniel Webster was appouit- 
ed Secretary of State, which naturally strength- 
ened Fillnioro'H adniiiiistration. In his last 
message to CouRress the President announced 
the death of Webster. He retired from the 
ofhco in 1853. leaving the country at peace 
within and without and in the enjoyment of a 
high degree of posterity. Just previous to his 
nomination for tlie Vice Presidency, Mr. Fill- 
more had associated with him in his profession 
Messrs. Hall and Haven, both of whom became 
eniiiieiU in the legal profession during the 
existence of tlio firm. The latter died some 
veais ago in Illinois, and the death of Judge 
ilall was announced on ilonday. Mr. Haven 
wns Postmaster-Cleneral under Fillmore. Mr. 
Fillmore visited Europe in 185G, and was re- 
ceived at the principal courts with the dis- 
tuiction which his character and career claimed 
for him. It was during his absence from this 
country that he was nm as a candidate for the 
Presidency by the American party, but he re- 
ceived a very small minority of votes. On his 
return he took up his residence at Buffalo, his 
home for thirty years, where he enjoyed 
among all classes that high consideration to 
which, by his talents and integrity, he was so 
justly entitled. 

The Labor Troubles. 

The WashiiiK; on Manufacturing Company, 
ol Gloucester, N. J., di&cliargcd about seven 
hundred of its employes who had insisted 
up'U an increase oi wages. S:>on alter the 
wives aud cbildrt-n of the men discharged 
PUiroiiuded tlie Snpeiintencient'sofficp,threat- 
eniiiij tho destructiou of himst-lf aud family. 
They w( re sooi., however, sent to their homes 
by the authorities. 

TuK laborers on the Brooklyn reservoir 
•W'lrks liavo struck to compel an advance io 
wages dtnia,i»<U.d. All cf tho Italian uurtion 
of the sirikcrs soon afterwards resumed work. 
when they were set upon by the Irish and Ger- 
man portion. A ilcbpenite tiglit followed, in 
whic'a all tools were turned into weapons, and 
several participants were Bcriotjaly wounded. 
The police snbsi qDCUt.v arrived and arresttd 
tbe lemkis ul the riot, seven of wLom were 
sent to piisoi). 

It is rumored that tlie Pennsylvania Rail- Will return to the rate of wagea paid 
prior to Jauuaiy U>, wlieu a .general reduction 
of 10 per cent. «aa made. 

The Temperance Movement. 

T Hii eru ■ade ui;alll^t tho cvil of iutomper 
anco is fast as-^uiniug a definite shape, and 
prouiistB to be if more importance, in a sen- 
Hiitiuiidl view, at la?*, than was at first an- 
tieipatod. It is difficult to name a locality in 
w iiich the niovoincnt has not been inaugurated 
with various results in each ; but tho crnsa- 
dora seem lo b.^ determined to bring the mat- 
ter to a siicccasiul is-^ue, and are straining 
every nwrve to accomplish the purposes aimed 
at. In Bonie localities the scoffers are nuraer- 
ou.i, but those who really appear to have any 
interest in the war aro in tho ma- 
joiily, at least it to appears Irom 
tho latest aecount^j. In a lew places 
the crusaders aro subjected to porso- 
cuti<jrH, but are holding out with what might 
be ternn d Chri;-tiau tortitude, and are wil- 
ling to sutler almost any indicuity if they can 
aid the cause. Numerous ca^es of penitent 
rum-sellerci aierejiiirtcd, and still, .again, oth- 
ers are n ported who cannot, by any ari 
known to tiio fair crusaders, bo prevaihd 
H(Min to givo up (licir business, which tliey 
el'iim ia a just an I legal one, fo long as Ihey 
fulfill Iho reijuirctnonts of the law. The war 
has attr.cted the attention of clergymen 
ihrongliout the country, and numerous and 
viried arc the opinion.^ expressed. The 
Jlev. 7Ienry Ward Bci cher expresfca

dre.'tion o' teir.fierance, under the aiispicea ol

however ( xi>reH>.>d his opinion in regard to th*- 
prcveut movement, and s-tatcd that he did not 
lo 'k with lavitr upon the women in their war 
poll luai Khnps, uuti believed that little or no 
g.Kid would come of it. He considered Dio 
J.cwis tHe fii>t sensationalist of the age, and 
that he wait engHgod io leading the present

his ardent desire lor sensationalism. Mr.

£t'(i aU very well for jireaohiu'. 

But proachin' aud practice don t gree ; 
I'm ptwted on virtue and temp'rance. 

And YOU can't ring it in on me. 
Jan toildle along with your pledge, KqiUre, 

Ef that's wliat you want me to Bign ; 
Betwixt me and you, I've beeu tUar, 

And m not take any in mine. 

A year ago last Fo'th July, 

A lot o' the boys was here ; 
We all got eomcd, and signed the pledge 

Fur to drink no more that year. 
There was Tilniau .Toy, and SherflT McPhaU, 

And ine and Abuer Fry, 
And Shelby's boy Leviticus, 

And the Oolycra— Luke and Cy. 

And we anteod up a hiindiod, 

lu the bauds o' DuacoiiKcdg'', 
Fur to be dividfd tho foUirin' Folli 

•MougHt the iKjys that ktp' the pledg.-. 
And we kuowed each other so well, h'lUire, 

You may taki< my scalp for a fool 
Ef every man, wheu he uigued his uauie, 

Didn't feel dead sure of the pool. 

Fur a while it all went lovely ; 

We put ui> a job next day 
Fur to make Joy IHievc his wift- wa« dead, 

And ho wint home niiddlin' gay. 
Then Aimer Fry ho killed a luuu. 

And alore he was hung, MePhail 
Je't bilked the widder oiiten Ucr bhiH;r 

By gittiu' Ulm slewed in jail. 

But Chris "mas scooped the SherifT— 

The egguogg gethert-d him in — 
And Shelt>y's boy L»'Yiticu8 

Was New Year's tight as sin. 
And along iu March the Oolyers 

Oot BO druuk that a fresh bilctl owl 
Would 'a looked, 'longside o' them two young men, 

Like a solK-r temperance fowl. 

Four months alone I walked th<: irhalk ; 

I thought my heart would break. 
And all them Iwys a-nlapiiin' my l«ek, 

Aud axiu", " What'll you take 7" 
I never slept without dreaming dreams 

Of Biirbin, Peach, or liye, 
But I chawed at my uigg<.r-head, aud sworu 

I'd rake that iiool or die. 

At last— the Fo'th— I humped iio«!lf 

Tlirough chores and breakfast boou. 
Then scoot t'd dowu to Taggart's store. 

For the pledge was off at noon ; 
Aud all the boys was gethered Ihar, 

And each man hilt his glass, 
Watehiu' me aud the clock, quite ;.olcmn like, 

I'or to see the last mmute lass. 

The clock struck twelve ! I raised the jug, 

And took one loviu' pull— 
I was holler clear from skull to lioots. 

It seemed I couldn't gut full. 
But I was rousfd by a fifudi>-h laugh 

That might have rais»d the dead — 
Them orn«ry Ktieaks had sot the clock 

A half an hour ahead. 

"All right," I squawked, "you've got me; 

Just order your drinks agin. 
And we'll latldle up to the Deacon's 

And neoop the ante in.'' 
And wheu we git to Kidge's, 

What a sight was that we saw! 
The Deacon and Parson Skietera 

lu the taU of a game of Draw. 

TfRy had shook 'em the heft of the moruiu*; 

The Parron's luck was fair. 
And he raked, the minute we got Ihar, 

The la*t of our pool ou a p'ar. 
8o no more temp'ruiice for me, Wtiuire; 

I 'low it's all very Hue, 
But ez fur myself, I thank ye, 

I'll uot take any in mine. 


" Well, Bir.'them was happy years. 
It moat kills me to look over 'em now. 
I was doin' so well. Had an idea I was 
a man made to prosper, I felt good to 
all the world, and that '«d been well, if 
I showed my good fellowship some oth- 
er way, But men are fools, I was so 
easy I couldn't refuse a social glass, 
and I was always free toasting others. 
Many's the time we've stood, three or 
four fools of us, clinkin' our glasses 
and drinkin' to brotherhood — drinkin' 
the very thing that made us fit for any- 
thing but brothers. It pleased me 
most to have them pledge my little 
girl. And the more they'd toast her, 
the deeper I'd druik. And I was 
drinkin' death to her and damnation to 

I'll cut it ofiF short. Didn't mean to 
say but a few words to you, but I got to 
thinkin' so. Can't spin it out much 
louRcr or there'll be no man left of me. 
Well, one day I started ou my home 
trip, full of that good fellowship you 
was imbibiu' awhile ago. Made the 
engine whizz ! We was awful jolly, the 
fireman and me. Never was drunk 
when I got on my engin* before, or the 
Company would have shipped me. 
Wam't no such time made on that road 
before nor since. I had just sense 
enough to know what I was about, but 
not enough to handle an emergency. 
We fairly roared down on the trestle 
that stood at the entrance of our town. 
I had a tipsy eye out, and, George, 
as we was flyin' through the suburbs, I 
see my little girl on the track ahead, 
waven a red flag and standin' itock 
till ! 

The air seemed full of Katies. I 
could have stopped the engine, if I'd 
onlv had sense enough to know what to 
take hold of to reverse her I But I was 
too drunk ! And that grand little angel 
stood up to it, trying to want us in 
time, and we just aWept right along in- 
to a pile of ties some wretch had placed 
on the track ! — right over njy baby I — 
Oh my baby ! — Go away, George. 

There ! And do you* want me to toll 
vou how that mangled little mass killed 
her mother ? Antl do you want me to 
tell you I walk alive a* murderer of my 
own' child, who stood Up to save me ? 
And do you want me to tell you the 
good fellowship you were druddu' 
ago brought all this ou me.

An Engineer's First Tictim. 

Last Hummer, the engine run by 
William Baird, of the lightning express 
on tho Hudson River Railroad, struck 
a drunken man who was sitting on the 
trestle bridge at Plum Point, and killed 
him instantly. At the inquest, the day 
after, the engineer tolil tho writer that 
exactlv a year before on that very day 
he hatl " struck his first man" some- 
where just beyonil Yonkers. Said he : 
•'I was ruuniiig the 'lightning' then, 
and was making lively time past Youk- 
ei"8, when I saw a young fellow with a 
cane in his hand, walking on the down 
truck. Just as I got within a hundred 
feet of him he deliberately walked over 
to my track. I whistled and jerked 
back my lever. The light was full in 
his face, aud when he heard my whistle 
I saw an expression of horror on his 
face, for he was blind and had thought 
I was coming on the down-track. He 
jumped, but it was too late ; and I saw 
him throw up his hands — I even heard 
him shriek — as the pilot struck him. 
I sat up that night and thought about 
that poor fellow, no use trying to sleep 
with that on mv mind. The next morn- 
ing I saw him faid out at the depot, all 
torn and mangled, but his face wasn't 
touched at all, and after I took a look 
at him I saw that face night and da 
for about six months every minute 
was on my engine. I shut my eyes 
when I passed the place where I struck 
him. I managed to get another engine; 
I did everything, but all the time, 
especially at night, in the glare of my 
head-light, I saw that pale, thin, blind 
face, I saw the hands thrown up, and I 
heard the poor fellow scream when the 
•pilot' seemed to strike him."

Now I've got you by the arm, boy, 
I want to tell you somethiug. Tlieu if 
want to go buck into that saloon, you 

1 dou't often meddle in other folks' 
business, do I? When a tough old fel- 
low like me sets out to waru a body, 
you may know its because he sees sore 
need of it. I've had an eye on you ever 
since the Company promoted you to an 
engine, and I want you to make a fair 
trip of your life. You're a fine, bright 
youngster, I don't never way things to 

Just takin' drinks for good fellow- 
ship? Yes, I know all 'bout that. 
Beeu there myself. Hit down ou the 
edge of the platftjrm here. 

Of all the men in the worltl, 1 take it, 
e«iijytuc»<»i.'H trnpfht Uy l>o the Inst t»> touch 
the Ixittle. We have life aud itt*opertv 
trusted to our hands uncommon. Ours 
is a grand businesn, I don't think folks 
looks at it as they ought to. Remem- 
ber when I was a young fellow like you, 
just set up with an engine, I used to 
feel like a strong angel or som«?thin', 
rushin' over the country, makin' tliat 
iron beast do just as I wanted him to. 
The p>ower, sort of made me tlrink fust, 
square up and feel much tif a man. 

I was doin' well when I married, and 
I did well long afterwards. We had a 
nice home, the little woman ami me : 
our hearts was set ou each other, auil 
she was a little proud of her engineer. 
She used to say so anyhow. She was 
sort of mild anil tender witli her tongue 
Not one of your loud ones. And pretty 
too. IJut you know what it is to love a 
woman, Georgii Burks, I saw you walk- 
ing with a blue-eyed little thing last 

And after awhile w^c had the little 
girl. Ht)W I ft^lt when I came home 
ami they put her into my arms for the 
tir^t tinie ! I looked sort i^ silly and 
sort of glad ! My wife, she just laugh- 
ed out loud, to see me li:imlle tliat little 
thing so orkardly. 

I never liked little ehihlrou much, 
but I took to that uu powerful. Evcry- 
boily liked her. 

George, my boy, did you ever take 
time to go and peep at young ferns in 
spring '? Y'ou see 'em all doubled to- 
gether, like a teeiilv fist. Tliat's what 
she was at first : all fist and squirm ; 
beauty curled up tight. Tlieiithty tiu- 
fold and spread out, and come uji bright 
and delicate, luul finer'ii you can jiut 
into words. That's just tho way she 
tlid. Every night I came liome, I fouutl 
her growed and plumped out more. 
Used to toss her up, and she'<l squeel 
like a squirrel, and come dowu on my 
face in fits of laughter. 

Oh, I darsu't think about her cun- 
uingness ! But the very first word she 
learned to say was " Papa !" 

We talked a good deal about what we 
should call her, my wife and I. We 
went eleau through the Bible, and set 
down all the fine sttiry names we heard 
of. But uothin' seemed to suit. I used 
to puzzle the whole length of my route 
to find a name for that little gill. Mv 
wife wanted to call her Endora Isabel. 
But that Hounded like folderrol. Then 
we had up Rebeccar, and Maml, and 
Amamla Ann and what not. Finally, 
whenever I looked at her, I seemetl to 
see "Katie." She looked Katie. I 
took to callin' her Katie, and she learn- 
ed it, so Katie she was. 

I tell you George, that was a child to 
be noticed. She was rounder and pret- 
tier made 'n a wax figger, her eyes was 
bigger aud blaeker'n any " grown wo- 
man's you ever saw, set like wtars under 
her forehead: and her hair was that 
light kind, that all runs to curls aud 

Soon's she couhl toddle, she used to 
come dancin' to meet me. I've soiled a 
many of her white pinafores, buryin' 
my face iu them before I was washed, 
aiid sort of prayiu'soft like under the 
roof of my heart, " God bless my ba- 
by !— Goc\ bless mv little lamb !" 

As she gre.w older, I used to talk 
to her about eugin' — even took her 
into my cab, and showed the 'tachinents 
of the engine, and learned her signals 
and such things. She tuck such au in- 
terest, aud was the smartest little 
thing ! Seemed as if she had always 
knowed 'em. She loved the roaiij. 
Remember once hearing her say to a 
playmate, "There's my papa. He's 
an engineer. Don't you wish he was 
your papa ?" 

My home was close by the track. 

Sahara iu the Past. 

Dr. Zittel, the geoloigist whti accom- 
panied the expetlition of Rolfl's iti its 
researches through the Sabam, in the 
latest of his letters on tho characteris- 
tics of that desert, establishes, with 
great clearness, says the Pall Mall 
Gazette, and by more than one distinct 
proof, the theory that it is the diied-up 
basin of a former shallow sea. The 
fine quartz sand, in particles never 
larger than the head of a pin, which 
forms at once the main feature and the 
danger of its surface, is not produced 
from any formation in or near it, and 
must have been carried to »t by some 
foreign agency. The real surface of 
the desert is a bare, dry, chalk plateau, 
at first examination resembling that of 
the Swabian Alps, but in reality of a 
much more recent origin. Above it 
rise here and there the isolatetl peaks 
called by the Arabs "wituesseH," which 
are of a' later chalk again. The tops of 
these, where several are visible, are in- 
variably ill n plane, showing that tluiy 
are the fragments of an ancient sur- 
face, the in&rvening spiices of which 
have been washed away. If the ques- 
tion be asked, by what, there beiufi no 
ground whatever for supposing torrents 
or glacial action, the answer can only 
be by the constant beating on it of 
waves dissolving the softer portions. 
But a more interesting point to many 
geologists will be Dr. Zittel's com- 
ments on the splinters of flints which 
are produced in great quantities rf)Und 
cei-tain peaks by the cutting process of 
the alternate slight dews and frosts 
which the expedition has found to be 
common in the winter nights in the 
Sahara. These fragments lie around in 
profusion and to a careless observer 
might appear not unlike some of the 
ruder flint chips of the first part of the 
stone age. But Dr. Zittel, who has 
made a study of the latter took pains to 
examine some thousands of these natur- 
al chipplings of flint, and found but a 
single one which au experienced eye 
coulil take to resemble those which 
have attracted so much notice in Europe. 
Hence he concludes that the Sahara 
flints aflbrds a fresh and vei-y strong 
indirect proof of the proiluction of the 
others by the human agency to which 
science has already assigned them. 

Signiflcaut Facts Regardin!^ Infants 

Under the most favorable circum- 
stances, where mothers nurse their own 
ofl'siiring, only about ten per cent, dit; 
under oue year of ago ; but where the 
bottle is used, the mortality is con- 
stantly increased. The death rate of 
infant's in cities is much larger tlian in 
the couutrj' : in fact, it is often twice as 
large. If "the whole population is in- 
cluded, it is foimd that mortality of 
infants, under one year of age, ranges 
from fifteen to twenty -five per cent, of 
all that are borii in a given time. It will 
be reiulily seen that there is a wide 
margin in the prospects of life between 
the foundlings and the healthy infrnt 
of good parentage. The statistics on 
this subject vary in different places and 
at difl'erent times, but everywhere this 
diff'erence exists, and in some cases it 
is extreme. Thus, we are told on the 
authority of long experience, that of 
those nursetl by the Iwttle in the care 
of other persons than their mothers, 
oftentimes only about ten per cent, live 
to the age of o'ne year ; whereas, of the 
infants who are fed from the bottle in 
care of their mothers, seventy per cent. 
Uve to one year of age. It has also been 
found that, of those nursed at the 
breast by others than the mother, only 
28 per cent, lived. At the New York 
Infant Asylum, where great care and 
pains have been taken, this result was 
obtained ; of those infants nursed by 
hired women, carefully selected and in- 
spected, 23 per cent, died, but of those 
nursed by their own mothers only 17 
per cent, ilied. This fact shows the 
importance of the maternal relation. 


Spain is the greatest producer of 
raisins. Those styled Valencia raisins 
find great f avof with all classes of Eng- 
lish people. A few years ago a crop of 
12,000 tons, for the supply of the 
world, was considered large ; now Lon- 
don receives 12,000 out of a total of 
20,000 tons that are grown. These 
raisins also find a large market in the 
United States and Canada. The im- 
provement in the article most observa- 
ble of late years is that of removing the 
stalk before sliipment. As no useful 
purpose has been found as yet for the 
stalks, they are generally burned. 
Muscatel, or table raisins from Malaga, 
vary widely in quality. They are 
known as '"layers," "bunch," ?ind 
"loose" raisins,' the best being picked 
from the stalk. This sort is largely 
used iu America. Tho growths of 
Muscatel's come to this county in 
decorated boxes with colored paper and 
lace edgings, increasing the expense of 
packing to the extent of $125 per ton. 

The Sultana raisins, produced in 
Turkey, are cured in the sun, a slight 
sprinkling of oil being Employed, to 
prevent the too great evaporation of 
the moisttire, and also to assist in thw 
preservation of the fruit when packed 
aud shipped. "The Oerlllans are also 
large coneui^ers of these raisins, and 
they constitute an article of considera- 
ble traffic between Trieste and Sravmn 
The Eleme raisins are t»l*6 produced in 
Turkey, aud Ave used chiefly for export 
to distant, colonies and for ships' stores. 
As their name implies, they are picked 
raisins, and are jiacked specially for 
ship U8« from the vinort of the Cara- 
bounia and Vourla districts in Asia 
Minor. The greater proi^ortion of the 
raisins from Hmyra »ro known as 
"Chesme," the name of an island near 
the mainland. These are the Turkey 
grapes, pure and simple, -without 
selection, picking of stalks, or any 
manipulation wliatever. They flud a 
rea<ly market in Mnstern countries, but 
are the special feature of fruit trading 
between Turkey and nermah ports. 
There are vast di»lncts in Persia where 
laisins are cultivated, but tho difficulty 
of getting them to market is so great 
that it does not pay to exixirt, conse- 
quently they are used for distilling aud 
for lo'cal purposes. At the Cape of 
Good Hope raisins are produced which 
find a market chiefly in Australia. 
Distillation <"ron\ fruit is annually in- 
(ivciising, and the supply for this pur- 
l>o8e is the black raisins of Turkey.

Tlic Maryland Twins. 

The Baltimore Sun gives the follow- 
ing in reference to female twins, born 
at Tobaccostick, Dorchester county, 
Md.,onthe ith inst., and who were 
joined at the breast in a manner regard- 
ed as more wonderful than the Siamese 
twins : The Dorchesler twins were of 
colored parentage, the mother being 
Alary Travers, who is now in excellent 
lual'th. Oue of tho twine was alive at 
birth, but died iu a few seconds there- 
after. The other, when born, was dead. 
The one first ushered into this world 
bore the impress upon its lace ot a 
geiuiin*^ negro, while the complexion of 
the other was like that of a white per- 
son, aud the hair less kinky upon its 
head than that adorning its sister. Dr. 
La Count Smith, of Tobaccostick, be- 
came possessed t)f the twins shoi'tl,y af- 
ter their birth, and wit4i thenl iirriVed 
in this city TeBtorda.v aifternoon, for the 
pitqiose of having the bodies properly 
preserved, which will be done by plac- 
ing them iu an lupiarium-shapetl vessel 
filled with alcohol. Last night the 
Dorchester monstrosities were exliibit- 
ed at the office of Dr. J. H. Tall, in 
the presence of several medical ^entle- 
meu. The boiul of union connecting 
the bodies of the twins extends from the 
centre of the breast-bone to the naval, 
thus placing tho bodies face to face. 
The bodies are well formed, and weigh 
ten pouuds and a half, and measure 
eighteen incites iu length. The physi- 
cians who were present gave as their 
opinions that each of the t^\ ills possessed 
sejiaratp stomachs, hearts, livers, &c., 
and that a wall separated the stomachs 
along that portion where the lioud of 
union exists. The only case on record 
where a similar bond of union ever ex- 
isted is in the London Museum, and 
like the Dorchester novelty the twins 
were females."

Dark spring the heart 's-ease by the rill ; 
Age-mosses clamber ever bright.

Thus life still courts the shades of night, 

Vud beauty hovers o'er the tomb. 

So all through life incongruous hue. 

Each object wears from childhood down. 
The evaneswnt — heaven's blue.

Can the £thio!>ian Change his Skin I 

A Dr. G. T. Maxwell, of New Castle, 
Pa., details in the Philadelphia Metlical 
Times au interesting experiment which 
adds peculiar force to the question asked 
by the prophet Jeremiah. In 1872, 
a negro named James Pearce was shot 
in the face accidentally, the wound be- 
ing such as would leave a frightful scar 
unless disfigurement could be in a meas- 
ure prevented by the engrafting of new 
skin upon the mutilated jiortion of the 
face. This course was adopted, and 
with liis patient's ctmseut Dr. Maxwell 
took grafts of skin from his own arm, 
which, with other grafts from the pa- 
tient's arm, he placed upon the surface 
of the wound. The success of the oper- 
ation was seriously eniLangered by the 
patient going on a spree, during which 
he destroyed some of the giafts, but 
fortunately two were left, oue of them 
being white. The piece of white skin, 
which at first was only tho size of a 
cauiiry seed, grew to cover a space of 
half an inch, and for a time after the 
wound had healed could be easily dis- 
cerned at quite a distance. Close ex- 
amination at this time showed that 
dark colored lines formed a net work in 
the skin, giving a purplish tinge to it. 
At the entl of a month these lines, which 
were simply blood vessels, had increas- 
ed to such an extent that the whole sur- 
face of the wound was of uniform hue, 
the white sldn having lost all its char- 
acteristics. From this experiment Dr. 
Maxwell draws the conclusion that the 
coloring matter which darkens the skin 
of some races is in tho blood, and not in 
the skin itself.

A Novel Torpedo. 

Torpedo experiments still continue at 
the Royal ArseUal, but are at present 
confined to Whitehead's fish torpedo. 
This is made of steel, is about eight 
feet long, eighteen inches in diameter 
at the centre, and tapers oft" to a point 
at each end ; at the tail end there is a 
three-bladed screw jiropeller, worked 
by an engine inside the body, aud a 
four-bhided rudder to steer it -in the 
direction it is intended to go. It is 
constructed in three parts ; the head 
contains the rocket, whicli being charg- 
ed with gun cotton when required for 
actual service, is tired by ciuicussion 
with the enemy's ship, and intended to 
blow up the vessel. The tail end is a 
chamber which holds the compressed 
air to work the «ugineB, and in the 
middle portion is placed the engine, 
with a pair of cylinders. These toipe- 
does are subjected to the test of 1,200 
pounds pressure to the square inch be- 
fore they are pronounced safe for use. 
Notwithstandingthis precaution, one of 
them recently exploded while being ex- 
perimented with at the arsenal, inflict- 
ing the most destructive results to pro- 
perty and loss of life. The torpedoes 
are mtended to be discharged from a 
tube in the bow of the ship, and are 
expelled by means of a piston, at the 
rate of ten miles an hour in a straight 
line for the object sought to be de-

not the brutal and disagreeable habit 
prevalent among us of sending dunning 
bills. When oue Indian owes aiiother, 
it is considered bad taste, as it is, for 
the creditor to dun the debtor. He pro- 
ceeds with more delicacy. He procures 
a certain number of little sticks, ac- 
cording to the amount of the debt, and 
paints a ring around the end of each. 
These he carries and tosses into the 
debtor's wigwam, and then goes away 
without a word. The debtor pays the 
debt and destroys the sticks; it is con-

thrown into the wigwam, and the credi-

other colors do. Another strong incen- 
tive is the avoidence of possible poison- 
ing, resulting from deleterious dyes. 
The Journal of Chemistry gives an in- 
ptauce of the poisjononfl fffert o( ani- 
Yme colors upon the skin in the experi- 
ence of a gentleman of Bytield. He 
had a few days previous purcliased some 
new'ii-t.s of cotton colored with 
various tints, auKmg which aniline red 
I)redomiuated. In a short time after 
nutting on the garment a peculiar erup- 
tion, cit an irritating nature, appeared 

u the portion of the body covered by 
hr cloth. The effects were ilot lilerely 
local, but to a considerable extent con- 
stitutional, pain iind uneasiness being 
experienced in the back and lower ex- 
tremeties. In proof that the eruption 
was caused by dye colors, it may be 
Htated that a'porti(m of the garment 
ttV)out the upper part of the chest was 
lined on the luider side, and wherever 
fhifl ranie iH contact T^itli tile skiii no 
eruption or redness appeared. It is not

be easjly poisoned by dye colors, but

i. During the summer Season you 
should have both a drinking cup and 
bath dish in the cage, and should wash 
them well twice a day, and fill with 
fresh water. The seed-ciii) should be 
tilled everv morning. 

3. The] room in which the bird is 
kept should never bt! warnier tllau 90 

3. Feed i)lain food. Now and then 
a lump of sugar does no harm ;^ but as 
a general riUe avoid sweets. Keep the 
cuttle fish dry and clean, and feed only 
fresh and dry seeds. 

J. Never place a cage where a 
draught can stiikt- the bird. 

fi. Never smoke in the room where 
Vour l»iul is kept, as the odor of a cigar 
IS fatal to canaries. 

t). As a general rule, never keep the 
bird in a i)ainted cage ; for the birds 
will pick at the wires, and it will lead 
to disease. 

7. When your bird Is shedding 
feathers, Avhicli is generally styled moult- 
ing, avoid draughts of air. 

By obeying these simple directions, 
iVonVan ke**).* birds in excellent liealth

The Canada Farmer gives the folhm- 
ing directions: ^Maiiy a wheel is ruin- 
Pd by oiling too plentifully. A well- 
ttiadc wheel will endure constant wear 
Irom ten to t\Venty years, if care is tak- 
en to us«^ the right kind aiid proper 
amount of oil ; but in this matter is 
not attended to, the wheel will be used 
up in five or six years, or it may be 
soonei-. Lard should never be used on 
A wagon, for it will penetrate the hub 
i>ai4 wt)»-k its way aruund the tenons of 
the spokes and spoil th»> wheel. Castor 
oil is a good material for Uoc on an iron 
axle, just oil enough be applied to a 
spindle to give a light coating ; this is 
better than move, for the siiphis put on 
will work out at the ends and be forced 
by the shoulders and nut into the hub 
around the outside of the boxes. To 
oil the axle-tree, tirst wipe the s])indles 
clean with i^ clt>th wet with turpentine, 
if it won't wipe without it. On a bug- 
gy or carriage, wii)e ami clean oil the 
back and front ends of the hubs, and 
then api)ly a very small (piantity of 
castor oil, or more especially prepared 
lubricator near the shoulder's point. 

They should be dug out and killed ; a 
small gouge or a strong sharp-pointed 
knife being used for this purpose, 
or ashes are frequently reccommendea 
as preventives, being heaped or strewn 
thickly about the stems ; but we are 
inclined to believe that their efficacy, if 
they possess any is mainly due to keep- 
ing the griiss and seeds from growing 
up and shading the very plac^ where 
the beetle selects for depositing her 
eggs. The Saperda attacks trees of all 
ages, but appears to prefer those that 
are young, probably because the bark 
ii thinner and affords more reatly ac- 
cess to her young. The only certain 
method of preserving our apple or- 
chards from destruction is to examine 
the trees otice ot twice every season, 
and dig out every grub found xn them 
If the base of the stem, for a foot or 
more from the ground upward, is en- 
closed in oiled or tarred paper, or any 
similar material, the female will seldom 
attack the trees. But even with these 
precautionary measures the tree should 
be annually examined. . . • 

The next most troublesome jnsoot is 
the "flat-headed borer." The grub is 
the Ian a or small, flattish beetle, about 
half nn inch long, of a greenish-black 
color aboVo arid a bronzo appearance 
underneath. The name of this beetle 
is Chri/sobothris fcmorata, and it ap- 
pears at various times during the sum- 
mer, the females disposing their eggs 
on the stems as well as in the forks oi 
the main branches. It does not how- 
ever, confine its ravages to the apple or 
trees belonging to the same family, like 
the Saperda named above, but attacks 
the beach, oak, and several of our for- 
est trees as well as other kinds of fruit 
trees The grub bore almost entirely 
between the bark and the wood, the 
latter dying as they advance. They are 
very flat and the head appears vei-y 
large in proportion U) the body ; hence 
the common name, * ' flat-headed apple 
tree )»oier," In Home parts of the 
country this insect Is . vei-y abundant, 
and large patches of dead shrunken 
bark mark their presence m the trees. 
The only preventive with which we are 
ac(iuainted is painting the trees at least 
twice each summer with strong soap. 
Of course the application, to be effectu- 
al must extend from the ground up to 
and tlio larger branches. Fre- 
nueiH examinations are also necessary, 
and everv' grub should be dug out and 
the wounds made by it covered with 
some kind of wax to prevent decay of 
exposed wood.

I found her seated upon her div.-in 
and smoking a long chibouk. She 
arose and bade me welcome. She was- 
a woman of middle size, and quite a 
bruriette. Her features express uncom- 
mon energj', and her penetrating eyes 
sparkled With intelligence. T bowetl 
low before her. She saluted me grac- 
iously, and indicated by a wave of her 
hand that I was to seat myself opposite 
to her on the divan. 

Around the apartment were a number 
of old women, whose duty it was t o 
amuse her Highness by relating stones 
to her : A chibouk was brought for me, 
and the Princess began the conversa- 
tion bv paying me several compliments. 
When'wT' were (diking they brought in 
some sherbet, and aftenvard fome 
coffee. At the end of about half an 
hour I retired for a short time to the 
apartment which had been prepared for 
me. Shortly afterAvard dinner was 
annoimced, and I had the honor of 
dining with the Princess alone. 1 he 
table was covered with embroidered 
silk, and the various articles of fo«xl 
were served in silver dishes elegantly 
chased ; eveii the spoons were orna- 
mented with precious stories. After 
dinner we all went into the garde u to 
smoke and take coffee. Toward ten 
o'clock fruit and sherbet were brought 
in vesssels of gold enriched with dia- 
monds. The Princess having drunk 
wine and brandy, began to talk more 
fairiUiariy with me ; then she called 
some of the woman to rtime nearer. 
One of the woman played the role of a 
lover of the Priucess, and they prac- 
ticed all sorts of gallantries. During 
this scene which became more dem<»n- 
strative as the drunkenness of the two 
principal actresses increased, some of 
the young slaves danced ab<»tit the 
apartment, clapping copper castanets, 
while others sang. They appeared to lie 
veiT much fatigued, and one couKl see 
by their looks that they did not have 
enough sleep. But they were o'wed 
to endure without a mnrmtir all that 
was put upon them, otherwise their 
mistress would beat them pitilessly. 
Several had died under the cruel tretit- 
ment inflicted on them by the Princess

debauchery and ((/oismr so revolting, 
and toward twelve o'clock begged 
permission to retire. The woman who 
had come to seek me at Jerusalem

used to have them killed, but as thesc>

A Lobster at Dinner. 

A lobster is a much more particular 
fellow in his food. I have been watch- 
ing one in my large marine rtqnarium, 
at Reculvers. If a portion of food be 
thrown down to him, he immediately 
sets to work tc* Rscertain the where- 
alx)uts of his dinner. If be does not 
like it, he at once pushes it awaj* from 
him with the attitude of an epicure who 
bids the waiter take away a plate of 
meat he does not fancy. If the food is 
agreeable to him, ho munches it up, 
moving his jaws in a pccuUar way, Uke 
a weaver making a blanket. He tears 
his food into large pieces, leaving the 
actual pounding work to be tloiie by the 
very peculiar internal teeth, which are 
found in the lining of the stomach, and 
which my reader can easily examine for 
himself, * if he will take the trouble. 
When tiie lobster goes out for a "con- 
stitutional," and is not in a particiUar 
hurry, he carries his great claws m 
front of him, well away from the 
ground, like the bigdws we sometimes 
see heading street processloiis- He 
" walks" upon the little legs which ai'e 
underneath his body, while he keeps 
his horns moving in front of his nose 
like a blind man tapping the flags with 
his stick as he plods along, led by his 
dog ; hence 1 conclude the lobster is 
short-sighted. If the least thing alarms 
him he scuttles backward ou his little 
legs of a ceiitipf de. If he does not go 
fast enough in this way, he suddenly 
snaps his tail toward him like a man 
suddenly closes his hand, and flies back- 
ward with a jerk like an India-rubber 
bimd snapped in half. He always goes 
into his cave tail foremost, and he takes 
the most wonderfully good shots at the 
entrance. It has been said by a friend 
of mine that a lly flsherman will never 
be perfect until he has got an eye at 
the back of his heatl, so as to prevent 
his drop-fly getting hitched up in the 
tree behind him. 1 really tluiik the 
lobster must have an eye lU his tail 
somewhere. Our pet hibster is not 
willing that the secrets of her toilet 
should be exposed to vulgar gaze ; so the 
fir^t night she was in the tank she art- 
fullv collected cockle and oyster shells 
and made a trench round herself after 
the fashion of the IVunans when 
they took possession «»f a high-top. A 
brunch of sea-wetnl forms a canopy over 
her head, and there she is at this min- 
ute, in a house of her own making, a

A Wrong Custom Correct«d. 

It is quite generally the custom to 
take strong liver Btimolants for the cure of 
Uver compUint, and both the mineral and veg- 
etable kingdoms have been diligently searched 
to procure the most drastic ond poisonous pur- 
gatires. in order to produce a powerful effect 
upon the UT«r, and arooBe the lagging and en- 
feebled organ. This aystem of treatment is 
on the same principle aa that of giving a weak 
and debilitated man large portions of brandy 
to enable him to do a certain amount of work. 
When thd utimulant is withheld, the organ 
Uke the system, gradoallv relapses into a more 
torpid or sluggish and weaJiened condition 
than before. What then is wanted? Medi- 
cines that, while they cause the bile to flow 
freelv from the liver, as that organ is toned 
into action, will not overwork and thus debih- 
tate it, but will, when their use is discontin- 
ued, leave the Uver strengthened and healthy.

" The greatest Sewing Machine Manufactory in 
the world is that of Wheeler 4 Wilson, New York, 
which alone has brought already over 900,000 of 
their Sowing Machines into practical use. The 
complete production of the parts by machinery is 
so regulated that each complete machine may be 
used as a sample for exhibition. This firm pro- 
duces COO well adjusted machines daily.. 

" The latest production of this firm, and which is 
the wonder of the Vienna Exposition, is their new 
No 6 Sewing Machine. This universal machine 
sews the heaviest leather harness and the finest 
gauzes with a truly pearl stitch.

It would seem as though there 


be no difference on this subject, when 
the great trouble generally is with our 
cows and our way of feeding them, that 
they will dry up anyway for the greater 
number, long tufore we really want 
them to. But there are some excellent 
cows, and well ki-pt, which continue to 
give milk nearly tlie entire year. It is 
better for these' however, to be dried oft' 
carefully by tlrawing oft' all the thick 
milk everv three or four days. Not to 
do this would be to endanger the ud- 
der and perhaps cause the loss of the 
use of one or more teats. The time 
for doing it should be from a month to 
six weeks before the cow comes in. — /i'm-

A|>|ilo Tr«M- U«rer». 

There are sevend insects known as ap- 
ple tree borers, but one most destruc- 
tive to the trees is the larva or gmb or 
the two-striped Sapenla ( Sojxrda ron- 
dida). This beetle it about three- 
quarters of an inch long, of a buff" col- 
or, with two distinct white stripes ex- 
tembng from the head to the tip of the 
wing covers. It is very shy, hiding in 
crevices of the bark, and up among the 
leaves of the tree during the day, and 
flying about at night. The beetles ap- 
pear in spring, the females usually de- 
positing their eggs on the bark of the 
trees near the ground, where thev soon 
hatch, and the grass bore into the sap 
woiid of the trees, frequently complete- 
ly girdling the stems. The grubs are 
nearly cylintbical, tapering slightly 
from the 'head to the end of the body. 
The head is small, brown, and horn- 
like in appearance. Apple trees that 
are cultivated, with the stems surround- 
ed by grass and weeds, are much more 
likely to be attacked than those receiv- 
ing the opposite treatment. 

The grubs can be found in the trees 
at this season and during the summer, 
their presence being readily detected 
by the saw-dust-like excrement pushed 
out from the furrow made by them 

like a tine sit^ve in the bottom,

passes through it is fit for use and if 
not used immediately should be placed 
where it will simply keep hot ami not

hvgienists, for they wdl not use coffee, 
Imt to those who still feel they must take 
coftee, we wt>uld say, if you must have it

said to a slave girl who was i)<)uriug 
some water for him, 'Enough, my 
lamb," and this simple being 
repeated to the Princess, nearly drove 
her out of her mind. The young girl s 
throat was cut by her orders, her liead 
stuffed with rice, and baked m the «.ven; 
and when the pruico returned this 
strange entertainment was served up. 
'Takeabitof your lamb,' she said to

napkin and rushed from the r.»om, nor 
did he return to the palace for a long 
time afterward. Ho never seemed to

The WoiiianN Paper In Ilaly. 

"La Donna" is a fortnightly paper 
of sixteen i)ages, publislujd in 

aiid editeirbv (iualbertti Becciiri, a wo 
man crip})letl and 


free to 

nnable to wiilk; its 
contributors are exclusively Italian wo- 
men, and its main "cause" is that ot 
education. P»)or working girls and 
women of wealtli and noble birth alike 
write f<u- it, and are in sympathy. Sig 
nora Beccari has just written her 
annual address, ami asks for liberty 
action, education, ailmission to work on 
ecpial terms, &c., and her arguments 
are those which have so long been i)ress- 
ed upon the pettplo here. "Thus, " she 
says, "we may be emancipated from 
dependence ou others, and so bt 
marry solely for love, not for 
nience, interest, or necessity. Then will 
the family be worthy the name of home. 
Meantime, apostles' of such gloru>us 
truths, we must be prepared for the 
crown of martyrdom, which is always 
the reward of the advocates of theories 
of innovation on estabbshed order; and 
we must not be surprised at the hatred 
and misconception «>f the very 
for whose welfare we are working with 
such unwearied efforts and such gener 
ous interest. Let us go on unflinching- 
ly in our work. Let education be in- 
scribed on our banners. Educatum is 
a ma"-ical seed, which holds within it 
the germ of all nobler and higher bfe. 
From it will spring a new social order. 
And in the future, not very far distant, 
lies victory and the emancipation of 
woman." _ 

Brilliaut Success. 

It is permitted to few men or compa- 
nies to achieve acknowledged superitmty 
in any important position or business. 
The present generation has witnessed 
stupendous rividry in several branches 
of industry, aud notably the Sewing 
Machine business. Amid a multitude 
of competitors, steadily and surely the 
Wheeler it Wilson Company held their 
way from the beginning upon fixed ami 
honorable principles. Long since, their 
leading ijosition in America was estab- 
bshed. Abroad, at London, in 1802, they 
won the highest premiums; at Paris, in 
18()7, they distanced eighty-two com- 
petitors, and were awarded the highest 
premium, the only Gold Medal for 
Sewing Machines exhibite<l; and lastly, 
amid unparalleled competition, followed 
the splendid triumphs at Vienna, noted 
in our advertising columns. * * 

"Can you st^er the mainmast down

any more.

shilling or half crown; and the pheno- 
menon was produced by the rays pass- 
ing through these. 

Egg (harms. 

The belief in the charms of serpents' 
eggs existed, until very recently, in 
Cornwall and Wales. This idea is traced 
back to the ancient R<mians, who held 
in high estiniation the eggs of serpents, 
ejected wlu-n hissing, and Avhen the 
snakes had been (>ntwin«Hl together. It 
was beli<'ved of them that they ensur- 
ed success, and the test of their genu- 
ineness was in their floating against the 
current of a stream. The «)ld Druuls 
iiniiressed it upon the minds of their 
followers that they must be ready to 
catch them in a cloak, so as not to let 
them toucb the ground, and then in- 
stsuitly flee from the «l«ce cm horseback. 

Mica-Co ateu Orn.\ments.— The beau- 
tiful silvery appearance of certain stat- 
uettes and'ornaments exhibited in the 
show-windows of Munich have recently 
attracted great attention, ami nfter care- 
ful investigation it iqipeaied that the 
objects were nuM-ely plaster casts, cov- 
ered with a film of finely-divide<l mica. 
The method is described as follows :— 
Plates of mica are first rendered per- 
fectlv clean and white, either V>y boil- 
ing in muriatic acid or by subjecting 
them to the action of fire; they are 
then washed, dried and gnmnd to a fine 
powder, which is carefully sifted or 
washe.l in water and mixed wnth a very 
thhi colloilion. It is now ready to be 
api)lii'd, like paint or varnish, wi".* ^ 
soft pencil, two or more coats being 
given until of the desired thickness. 
The objects thus coated have a sdvery 
appearance, and i>osses8 one advantage 
.iver those in Avhich tinsel or metalic 
bnnize is employed, in not being at all 
aft'ected by suiphuric vapors. They 
are not injured by dust and dirt, and 
may be cleansed by washing in water.

Death of Senator Sumner. 

The country was utartled, on Wwiiienday, by 
the auiiouucemeut of the death of Bouator 
Charles Sumuer, of MaH»achu»ett8, after au 
UhieBB of leua than a day. Senator Sumner 
occupied liis seat in the Senate on Tuesday, 
and while there had a sUght attack affecting 
the nerves of the heart, but when he returned 
home he wa« Hufticiently well to entertain two 
friciKlH «• diiiiior, at the cIoho of which he 
-made alluHiou to the condition of hiH heart; 
and I'Ctween !) and 10 o'clock he wan taken ho 
nick an to require the attendance of aphyHician. 
Au hour or more thereafter he had a second 
attack of Iuh old diHcane, nn<jina ficlorh, and 
from that time rapidly sank luitil death occur- 
red, at 2:45 Wednewlay afternoon. NumerouM 
fiieudH Hunouuded the bediude of the re- 
nowned Senator, who retained his conscioua- 
iieet* to the la»t. recognizing the voices of 
those who spoke to him. although he declared 
his inabihty to see them. Charles Suinner 
was bom iu Boston. Jauuar)' (J, lUll, gradu 
ated at Harvard College in 1800 ,and studied 
!iw in the same institution after taking hiw 
decree. In early life he contributed to and 
afterward became editor of the American 
.Tiinst. In 1834 lo was atlmitted to the bar 
and l>egan to practice law in Boston. lie ed- 
ited, in lH3t4, Diuilop's " Treatise (m the 
rraclicc of the Aihniralty Coiuts in Cases of 
Civil .liirisdiction at Sea." In 18,1V, he 
visited Europe, and at the request of Gen. 
Cass. French Ambassador, wrote a defense of 
the rights of the United States in reference 
to the questions then pending l)etween the 
two governments. Mr. Sumner signalized 
liimhelf by his opposition to the annexation of 
Texas, and by his support of Mr. Van Buren 
Uf candidate for the I'residency. in 1818. and 
was elected to the U. S. Senate, as successor 
of Daniel Webster, in 1851. He was a famous 
cl Mmpioii of hla\e nbolition, and the leatler of 
the ludicul party with that object in view. 

)Ir. Sunuier, not less from his ability and 
radicalism on the question of slavery, a<> 
qiiired a national reputation, than by the 
I'rutal asbatilt made upon him in 185ti, by 
Brooks, of South Caioliiia, in the Senate 
Chamber, where he waa beaten down an<l lay 
weltering in his blood. He recommended the 
sunender of Mason and Slidell, in the Trent af- 
fair, whilst maintaining that Enghsh prece- 
dents were favorable to the right of the United 
Stales government to retaui them. In 185t» 
he published a volume of " Orations and 
Speeches, " and a volume entitled '• White 
Slavery in the Barbary States." The later 
years of Mr. Smmier's life were not so pleasf 
ant to him as he wisheil they could have been. 
PilTcreuces sprung lip between himself, Scc- 
taiT Fish, and President Grant, which estrang- 
ed some of his %varmest friends from his side. 
His removal from the chairmanship of the 
Coininittee on Foreign Kelations was most 
deeply felt. He regarded it as a personal 
huniiUation : he was the oldest llepubUcan 
Senator ; Ids aci|uirements were conceded and 
his capacity undoubted. But inasmuch as Mr 
Fish would not hold personal intei-course with 
him, he was displaced and Senator Cameron 
appointed. During the Presidential campaign 
in 1872, ho again visited Eurojie ertimiing 
before the meeting of Congress. Dming 
the winter of 1872 the MassachusettH 
Legislatura passed resolutions ceiisming 
Senator Sumner for his pohtical course, 
but the Legit<latiu'e now in session passed reso- 
lutions reijcinding the action of the previouH 
Legi-^lature, and these resolutioiis were rciul 
u the United States Senate the day before the 
eminent Senator's death. Charles Sumuer was 
a mail of great abihty and iiTeproachable cliai- 
a.1 tor, and his like will rai'ely bo met with 
again in the councUs of the nation. 

Slave Uprising in Cuba. 

Iiit'onuatiou ha.-i lieen received of the up- 
rising of hlavos on the sugar et tatcs in the ihh- 
trict of Maiet, nbout 45 miles fif)m Haveiia. 
and in the neighborhocjd of Bahia Ii(3iida. 
The uprising began in the State of Jaguine, 
fomented by pottr planters, who are under the 
impression that if the slaves should rise in 
their vicinity, the authorities would feel Ixmud 
to arm the whites to maintain peace at home, 
and thereby present them from being sent to 
tight to the eastern portion of the island. 
The captain general has ordered troops into 
the vicinity of the trouble. 

The India Famine. 

The fiimino in India is spreading so rajniUy 
that the olHcials are becoming alarmed, and 
are taking stei>s to avert the threaleiiod calam- 
ity as much hh possible. In the Tierhook dis- 
trict li,M».(MMl persons have applied for reUef. 
and oilier places report a hke condition. The

Volcanic Eruption. 

Bald .Mountain, ui the we,->teiii part of North 
CaroUna. was in a stele of volcanic eruption 
on Maicii 17. and the houses and fences on 
the side.s and base of the motuitaiii have been 
thrown down, and the inhabitants were fleeing 
UI tenor from their homes. A thin vapor 
lifos from the top of the mountain and a low, 
nunbliiig sound is constantly heard, causing 
much alai m aixl consternation to the people in 
the vicinity.

Although tim'o rrops of vegetables 
eiiii lie luistHl annually, Htill agrietiUtire 
is in il very biiekwanl Ktate, ami meat 
of the friiitH eiuimeri»t«Ml tiro Bpecially 
rather than generally eiiltivated. In 
the early eolonial ilays it wuh the ehicf 
oeenpntioii of the people, but waw after- 
ward abatuloned for other pnrHuitH, and 
after the iiitrodiietion of slavery the 
hiiul was mostly tilled by slaves, and a 
certain disgrace attached tt> tliis kind of 
hibor. Ignoranee reigned in the lields, 
and it is only reeently that an attemj)t 
has been made to wrest them from its 
sway. The most progressive men are 
now" deeply interested in the subject, 
and strong efforts are V)eing made to in- 
tliice the people to cnltivate something 
besides the stereotyped onion, potato, 
aud arrowroot, the last said to he the 
best iu the world, though the quantity 
raised is constantly diminishing, as it 
exhausts the soil, and does not prove 
as remunerative as some other crops. 

Small patches of laud are elected 
here and there, are carefully spaded — 
the plow not b«>ing in common use — and 
from them surprisingly large crops are 
realizeil. The laml is' quite generally

One great drawlmck to the colony has 
been the hwk of regular steam commti- 
ni<-ation with New York. The govern- 
ment now pays a subsidy to induce 
steamers to run to Bermuda, and in the 
crop season, during the mouths of 
April, May and June, weekly trips are 
made. At other seasons they run once 
iu 20 days. The value of exports last 
year, 187;^, has been about ^3.50,000. or 
an increase of ;8ir)(),(jtH> over that for the 
year 1872. The ready market wliich is 
secured by st^'am communication, and 
the increa«e<] th>mand which will b« 
made for products which the country 
can so easily supply, will make of Ber- 
muila ere long that for which she is so 
well flitted — tlie garden of New York. 

Simple Method Sharpeuin^r of Ka/orN. 

It has long been known that the 
simplest method of sharpening a razor 
is to put it for half an hour in wat<>r to 
which one-twentieth of its weight 
of muriatic fir sulphuric acid 
ha« been atided, then lightly 
wipe it off, and, after a few hours, set 
it on a hone. Tlie acid here supplies 
the place of a whetstone by corroding 
the whole surface uniformly, so that 
nothing further than a smooth polish is 
necessary. The process never injures 
goo«l blades, while baiUy hardened ones 
are frequently improved by it, although 
tln" cause of this improvement remains 

What the colonel's buslRess was no- 
body kiujw nor did anybody care, par- 
ticularly. He purchased for casli only, 
and he never grumbled at the price of 
anvthing that he wanted ; who could 
ask more than that ? 

Curious people ficcasionally wonder- 
ed how, when it had been fully two 
years since the <'oloiiel, with every one 
else, al)aiuioned Diu'k Creek to the 
Chinese, he managed to spend money 
freely, and to lose considerable at cards 
aud horse races. In fact, the keeper of 
that one of the two Challenge Hill 
saloons which the colonel diil not |>at- 
rouize was once heard to abseiit-mind- 
etUy wonder whether the colonel hadn't 
a money-mill somewhere where he tttrn- 
ed out double e-agles and ".slugs" (the 
Coast name for tifty dollar gold iiieces). 
When so imijorttint a personage as a 
bar-keeper indidged puljlicly in an 
idea, the inhabitantti of Challenge Hill, 
like good Caliloriiiaiis everyAvhere, con- 
sidered themselves iu duty bound to 
give it grave consideration, so for a few 
days certain iiubistrous prtifessional 
gentlemen, who won money of the colo- 
nel, carefully weighed some of the 
brightest pieces and tested them with 
aeitls, and tasted them aud sawed them 
in two, and retrieil them and melted 
them tip and had the lumps as^sayed. 

The result was a complete \intlica- 
tion of the colonel, aud a loss of con- 
siderable custom to the indiscreet bar- 

The colonel was as good-natured a 
man as had everbeeu ku<»wn at Chal- 
lenge Hill, but V»e»ng mortal, the colo- 
nel had his occasional times of despond- 
ency, and one of them iK-curred after a 
series of races in which he had staked 
his all on his own bay mare Tipsie, aud 
had lost. 

Looking leproachfully at his beloved 
animal he failed to heed lit*' aching void 
of his pockets, tuid drinking deeply, 
swearing eloquently, aud glaring detiaut- 
ly at all mankind, were equally iinpn>- 
ductive of coin. 

The boVs .-it the sahion sympathized 
most feelingly with the colonel ; they 
were unceasing in their invitations to 
drink, and they even exhibileil eon.siil- 
erable Christian forbearance when the 
Colonel savagely dissented with every 
one who adviinced any proposition, no 
matter have iin-ontrovertable. 

But uuappreciated svmpathy grows 
decidedly tiresome to tlie giver, and it 
was with a feeling of relief that th« Ixiys 
saw the Colonel stride out of the sahion, 
mount Tipsie, aud gallop furiously 

Riding «^n horseback has always been 
considered ai> excellent stirt of exercise, 
aOtl fiisl riding is universally admitted 
to be one of the most healthful and de- 
lightful means of exhilaration in the 

But when a man is so ab»«irbed in his 
exercise that he will not stop to speak 
to a friend, and when his exhiliration is 
so complete that he turns his vycn from 
well meaning Ihumlis pointing signifi- 
cantly into dtKirways tlirougli which a 
man has often passed while seeking 
bracing inlbiences, il is but natural that 
pi!'<»ple shouhl express some wonder. 

The Colonel was well kimwii at Toddy 
Flat, Cone Hand, Blazers, ISIiirderer's 
Bar, and several other village.s through 
which he pas.seil, amd ii.s no one had 
been seen to precede him, betting men 
were soon offering odds that the t'olonel 
was rumiing away from somebody. 

Strictly speaking they were wrong, 
but they won all tlie money lliat had 
been staked against them, for within 
half an hour's time there passe<l over 
the saiiK' road an anxious looking iinli- 
vidital, who ii'igned up in front of the 
principal saloon of each place, and asked 
if the Cohmel ha<l pa.ssed. 

Had the gallant Cohmel known that 
he was followed, and by whom, there 
would have beiMi an extra election held 
at the latter place very shortly after, for 
the pursuer was the c«instable of Chal- 
lenge Hill, and f<»r constables and all 
olliceis of tlu" law the ('oloiud possessed 
hatred of nn.s])eakable intensity. 

On gaUoped the Colonel, I'ollowing 
the sfaHTe-road, which thrciwUd the iiltl 
mining camps on Duck Creek; but sud- 
deiil.v he tiirneil abruptly out of the 
road, and urged his horse' tlirough the 
young pines and bushes, whii-h grew 
thickly by the road, while the constalde 
galloiH'd rapidly «in to the next camp. 

There seemed to 1h> no path through 
the thicket inbi which the colonel had 
turned, but Tipsie walked between the 
trees and shrubs as if they were the 
familiar objects of her own stable-yard. 
Suddenly, a voice from the bushes 
shouted : 

" What's up'?" 

" Business— that's what," replied the 

" It's time," replied th<> voice, and 
itsowner — a bearded six-fix>ter — emerg- 
e<l from the bushes, and stroked Tip- 
sie's nose with the freedom of au old 
acipiaiutitnce. " We ain't had a nip 
8in«'e last night, and tliar ain't a crack- 
er or a handful of Hour in the shanty. 
The old gal go ba<'k on yer ? 

"Yes," replied the Cohmel, ruefully, 
'* lost ev'ry blast^'d riu*e. 'Twa+<n't her 
fault, bless her — she «lone her level 
l)est. Ev'rj-body t«» lK»me'?" 

" You bet," said the man. " All ben 
a prayin' for yer t^r turn up with the 
rocks, an' somethin' with more color 
than spring water.. Come «in." 

The man led the way and Tipsie and 
the Colonel followed, ami the trio sud- 
denly found themselves before a small 
log hut, in front of which sat three 
solemn, disconsolate individuals, who 
looked appealinglv at the cohmel. 

" Mac'll tell yer how 'twas, ftllers," 
said the Colonel meekly, "while I 
picket the mare. " 

The Colonel was absent but a very few 
moments, but when he returned each of 
the four were attired in pistols and 
knife, wliile Mac was distributing some 
dominoes, made from a rather dirty 
flour bag. 

'"Taint so late ez all that, is it?' 
inquired the Colonel. 

" Better be an hour ahead than miss 
in tliis'ere night," said one of the four. 
'• I ain't been so thirsty since I come 
'nnmd tho Horn, in '50, an' we run 
short of water. Somelxuly '11 git hurt if 
the' ain't any l^itters on the old concern 
— they will, or my name ain't Perkins." 
" Dim't count on your chickens fore 
they're hatched, Perky," saijl oue of 
the party, as ht* adjusted the domino 
under the rim of his hat. " S'posin' 
ther' shud be tt>o many fur us ?" 

"Stiddy, stiddy. Cranks !" remon- 
strated the colonel. " Nobody ever 
gits along ef they 'low 'emselves to be 

" Fact," chimed in the smallest and 
thinest man if the party. " The Bible 
says somethin' mighty hot 'bout that. 
1 disremember ilzackly how It goes ; 
but I've heerd Parson Buzzy, down in 
Maine, preacli a rippiu' old sermou 
meny a time. The old man uever thort 
what a comfort them sermons wus a 
goin' to be to a road rtgent, though. 
'That time we slopped Slim Mike's stage, 
an' he didn't hev no more manners than 
to draw on me, them sermons wtiz a 
perfect blessin' to me — the thought of 
'em cleared my head as quick as a cock- 
tail. An' " 

" I don't want to dispute Logroller's 
pious strain," interrupted the colonel ; 
" but ez it's Old Black that's a drivin' 
to-day instid of Slim Mike, an' ez Old 
Black oilers makes his time, liedu't we 
better vamose ?" 

The door of the shanty was hastily 
closed and the men filed through 
the thicket until near the road, when 
they raarcheti rapidly on iu parallel 
lines with it. After aljout half an hour, 
Perkins, who was leadings hailed and 
wiped his perspiring brow with his 
shirt sleevCi 

"FtVr enough from home now," said 
he. " 'Taint no use bein' a gentleman 
ef yer have to work (00 hard." 

"Safe enough, I reckon," replied 
the colonel. " We'll dO the usual ; I'll 
halt 'rdl, Logroller 'tend to the driver, 
Cranks takes the boot, an' Mac an' Perk 
takes riffht an' left A|i'— 1 know it's

eternally hard up we are, I reckon we'll 
hev to ask contributions from the ladies, 
too, ef ther's any aboard — eh, boys ?" 

" Reckon so," replied Logroller, with 
a chuckle that seemed to inspire even 
his black domino with a merry wrinkle 
or two. "What's the use ov women's 
rights ef they don't ever hev a chance 
ov exercisin' 'em ? Kevin' ther imrses 
borrowcil 'lid sliow 'eutlie hull doctrine 
in a bran new light." 

"They're treacherous critteVs. i\o-

'enl nlight put a knife into a feller while 
he wiiz pologizin'." 

"Ef t/ou'rr afeard ov 'em," stiid Per- 
kins, "you ken go back an' clear up the 

" Reminds me ov what the Bible sez," 
said Logroller ; " ' ther's » lioll oil tlie 
trail ; I'll be chaweil up, sez the lazy 
galoijt,' or words to that effect." 

"Come, ccme, boys," interjiosed the 
colonel, " don't mix religion an' biziu'ss. 
They don't mix no moi-e than — Hello, 
thar's the crack of Old Black's whip ! 
Pick yer bushes — ipiick ! All jump 
when I whistle ! " 

Each man secreteil himself near the 
roadside. The stage came swinging 
along handsomely ; the inside were 
laughing heaiiiLv about something, and 
Old Ulaek was just giving a delicate 
touch to the Hank of the oil" hadi-r, 
when the cohmel gave a shrill, (luiek 
whistle, and live men sprang into the 

The horses stopped as suddenly as if 
it were a matter of common occurrence. 
Old Black dropped the reins, cro:^8ed 
his legs, and stared into the sky. and 
the passengers r»ll put out fhei*-' heads 
with a rapidity equalled only by that 
with which they withdrew them as they 
saw the dominoes and revolvers of the 
road agents. 

" Seems to l)e something the matter, 
gentlemen," said thn Colonel, blatidly, 
as lie optiied tile ilooi*. '' Won'i vou 
plt^ase get out '? Don't trouble your.solf 
to draw, 'cos my friend here't; got his 
weaiJon cocked, on' his fingers is rather 
nervous. Ain't yot a handkerchief, hev 
yer ?" asked he otthe lirsti)asNenger who 
descended from tlie stage. " Hev ? Well 
now, that's lucky, Just put yer hands 
behind you, pleme — so — that's it." And 
the unfortunate nan was securely bound 
in an instnilt: 

The remaining passengers were 
treated with simlar courtesy, and the 
(%donel and his friends examined the 
pockets of the cf^)tives. Old Black re- 
mained unmoleslMl, for who ever heard 
f)f a stage-driver having money '? 

" Boys," said (lie Colonel, calling his 
brother agents aade, and comparing re- 
ceipts, " 'taint nuch of a haul; but 
there's only one Woman, an' she's old 
enough to be a fellfr's grandmother. 
Better let her ahne, eh ?" 

" Likeenougl she'll pan out more'n 
all the rest of tli3 stiige put together," 
growled Crank.*^ carefully t<'sting the 
thickness of thecasc of a gold watch. 
" Jest like the hw-lived deceit fulness of 
some folks, to hife au old womunto eariy 
their money, so it'd go safer. Mabbe 
what she's g*t lin't nothin to some folks 
thet'sgot htnsesthet kin win 'cm im)ney 
at races, bul — " 

The Colonel abrubtly ended the c«in- 
versation, unl approached the stage. 
He was very chivalrous, but Cranks' 
sarcastic rel'reuce to T'ntxir needed 
avenging, ani as he could not c«msist- 
ently with bisiness arrangements put an 
end to Cranle, the old lady would have 
to suffer. 

" I beg vrttT parding, ma'am," said 
the Colonel/aising his hat politely with 
one hand wlilehe opened the coach door 
with the otler, " but we're taking up a 
collection fir some deserving object. 
We ii<nz a-g*in to make the gentlemen 
fork over th" hull am<mnt, but ez they 
hain't got aiough, we will hev to bother 

f/OK. '' 

The old kdy tremble<l, felt for her 
jiocket iKHjk, and raised her veil. The 
Colonel lot)ked kito her face, slammed 
the stage door, and sitting down ou the 
hub of one of the wheels, stared vacant- 
ly into space. 

"Notith"?" rpierie*! Perkins in a whis- 
l)er and with a face full of genuine 

' " No-^ycs," said the Colonel dreami- 
ly. "That is, untie em, and let the 
s'tiige go aheati," he continued, spring- 
ing to his feet. "/'// hurry l).ick to the 
cabin." And the Cohmel dashed into 
the bushes and left his foUowers s<j 
paralyziMl with astonishment that Ohl 
Black afterwards remarked that "<>f 
ther'd l»een anybody to hold the bosses 
he could hev" cleaned the hull crowd 
with his whip." 

The passengers, nown-lieved of their 
weapons, were unbound, allowed to 
ent4^r the stage and the door was slam- 
med, upon which Old Black picked tip 
his reins a« cmdly a,s if he had lain 
them down at a station while horses 
were being changed , then he cracked 
his whip and the stage rolled off, while 
the Colonel's party hastened back to 
their hut, fontillv iubi>ectixig a^ they 

went certain flasks they had obtained 
while transacting their business with 
the occupants of the stage. 

Great was the surprise of the road 
agents as they entered their hut, for 
there stood the Colonel in n clean white 
shirt and in a suit of clothing made up 
from the limited spare wardrobes of the 
other members of the gang. 

But the suspicious Cranks speedily 
subordinated his wonder to his pru- 
dence, as laying on the table a watch, 
two pistols, a pocket book aud a heavy 
purse he exclaimed : 

"Come Colonel, bizness before 
pleasure ; let's divide, an' scatttir. Ef 
anybody should hear bout it, an' find 
our trail, an' ketch the traps in our 

possession, they might " 

" Divide yerselves !" said the Col- 
onel, with abruptness and a great oath. 
"I don't want none of it." 

"Colonel," said Perkins, removi^?g 
his owTi tlomino and looking anxiously 
into the leader's face, " be you sick ? ' 
Here's some bully brandy I found in 
one of the passenger's pockets." 

" I hain't nothin'," replied the Colon- 
el with averted eyes. " I'm goin', and 
I'm a retirin' from this bizness, for- 

" Ain't agoing to turn evidence ?" 
cried Cranks, grasping the pistol on 
the table. 

"I'm a-goin to make a lead-mine of 
you ef you don't take that back !" roar- 
ed the Colonel, with a bound, which 
caused Crankib to drop the jjistol and 
retire precipitately forward, apologizing 
as he went. " I'm goin' to tend to my 
own l)izness, an' that's enough to keep 
any man liizzy. Somebody lend me 
fifty dollars till I see him agin." 

i*erkiils pressed the raouey into the 
Colonel's hand, and withiu two minutes 
the Colonel was on Tipsie's back, and 
galloped on in the direction the stage 
had taken. 

He overtook it, he passed it. and still 
he gi»lloped oft. 

Tile people at Mud iGtuch knew the 
Colonel well, an<l made it a rule never 
U) be astonished at anything he did ; 
but they made an exception to the 
rule when the Colonel canvassed the 
jiriiicipal bar-rooms for men who wished 
to purchase a horse ; and when a gam- 
Ider who was flush obtained Tipsie in 
exchange for twenty slugs — only a 
thousand dollars, when the Colonel had 
always said that there wasn't gold 
enough on top of the ground to buy 
her —Mud Gulch experienced a decided 

One or two enterprising persons 
speedily discovered that the colonel 
was not in a communicative mood ; so 
every one retired to his favorite saloon 
and bet according to his own opinion of 
the colonel's motives and actions. 

tint when the colonel, after remain- 
ing in a barber shop for half an hour, 
emerged with his face cleau shaved and 
llait- neatly trimmed and parted, betting 
was so wild that a cool-headed sporting 
man speedily made a fortune by betting 
against every theory that was advanced. 
Then the colonel made a tour of the 
stores and fitted himself with a new- 
suit of clothes, carefully eschewing all 
of the generous prttterus and pronounc- 
ed colors so dear to the average miner. 
He bought a iielv hat, and put on a pair 
of boots, and pruned his finger nails, 
and, stranger than all he mildly declin- 
ed all invitations to drink. 

As the Colonel stood in the door of 
the principal saloon, where the stage 
always stopped, the Challenge Hill 
constable was seen to approach the 
Colonel and tap him on the shoulder, 
upon which all men who bet that the 
Colonel was dodging somebody claimed 
the stakes. But those who stood near 
the Cohmel heard the constable sity : 

" ColoiK'l, I take it all liack, an' I own 
up fair 'an sipiare. AVlien I seed you git 
out of Challenge Hill it come to me all 
of n Hinhien that .you might be iu the 
road agent business, sti I f<.«lle»ed you 
— tluty you know. But when I seed 
y<m sell y/y^.s/^ I knowed I was on the 
wrong trail. I wouldn't suspect you 
now if all the stages in the State wuz 
lobbed ; and I'll pive you satisfaction 
any way vou want it." 

"It's all right," said the Colonel with 
a smile. The constable afterward said 
that nobody had any idea of how curi- 
ously the Cohmel smiled when his 
beard was <^iff. "Give this fifty to Jim 
relit i!)H fust time yer see him. I'm 
leavin' the State.' 

Suddenly the stage pulled up at the 
dtior with a crash, and the male passen- 
gers hiirrif'd into the saloon in a state 
of utter iiulignation and impecuniosity. 
The story of the roblrery attracted 
every body,and during the excitement the 
Colonel slippt'd out quietly and opened 
the (hior of the stage. The old lady 
started ami cried ; 

And the (Vihmel, jumping into tho 
stage and put his arms temlerly about 
llie trembling form of the old lady, ex- 
claiming : 

A Froiirh Enoch Arden. 

A resembling that of Enoch 
,\rd(n hrts tursed itj) in the Sa4me-at- 
Ijoire. A y<iung man named ISIarmier, 
who had been niarrie<l only a few 
iiioiiths when the war broke out, joined 
the ISfobiles of the Vosges, an<l wa^ 
taken prisoner. Onarriving in Prussia 
he was sentenced t^i several years' im- 
prisonment for striking his guard. 
During his cfipti>'ity he wrot<.' often to 
his wife, but receiving no reply, con- 
eluded that his letti'rs were not for- 
warde«l or that his wifewasdead. When 
he was taken prisoner he threw away 
his knapsack, which was pieke<l up aud 
worn by a comrade, who managed to 
escape, but who was subsequently kill- 
ed ill atiotlur eiigagenn-nt. This knap- 
sa<'k contained tlie papers of Marmier, 
which were forwarded t<» his wife as the 
last remains of her husband. The 
young widow after a few months of 
grief, t<iok a second husband. Since 
then Marmier, having oiitaiued a I'ar- 
(hm, was allowed to return to France, 
and, on reaching his native cottage, 
found it oecupied by another, .lud a 
child of which he was not the father. 
Here the drama ends for the present.

those wht> lavish money wastefully 
were never l>etler illustrated than in 
the cjise of the late Legrand LockwiKid's

^cenrM at WnMhinKton, I>hiln<leh>l>in and 
New York— <'li«HinK of Ihe IIiih.v lAtv, 

The funeral of the late Charles Sum- 
ner took place in the Senate Chamber 
at Washington on March 13th, in the 
presence of the president and cabinet, 
the supreme court, the senate and the 
house of representatives, and the entire 
diplomatic corps, headed by the British 
minister. The vast chamber overflowed 
with the populace, while the stairways 
and corridors leaiUng to it were densely 
crowdeti The attendance was quite as 
large as at the funeral of Mr. Lincoln. 
The ceremonial was simple and unos- 
tentatious, aud equally notable for a 
sincere tribute of regard. 

The pall-bearers were Senators 
Anthony, Sargeant, McCreery, Oglesby 
aud Stockton. 

The services, consisting of brief prayers 
and reat^gs from Scriptures, were con- 
ducted Ijy the Rev. Byron Sunderland, 
chaplain of the Senate, and Rev. J. G. 
Butler, chaplain of the House of Rep- 
resentrtaves. By special request of the 
intimate personal friends of the deceased, 
no remarks were made on the occasion. 
After the services the remains were 
conveyed to the railroad and taken to 
New "York, en route to Boston, on a 
special train wliich left Washington 
immediately after the regular 1 o'clock 
train. Besides the committees appointed 
by the Senate and House, the remains 
were accompanied to Boston by Major 
Ben Perley Poore aud other i>ersonal 
friends of the deceased. 

On the arrival of tJie funeral train at 
Philadelphia, it was met bv a large 
concourse <if sympathizers -^no desired 
to pay their respects to the memory of 
the dead Senator, but the arrangements 
of the committee aud the rapidly ap- 
proaching decomposition of the body 
would not admit of delay, and the train 
bearing the remains was hurried ou to 
New York. 

On arrival at the latter place the re- 
maiils were hurriedly taken to the 
Fifth Avenue Hotel, where a rest was 
had until Saturday, when the train 
started ou its way to Boston. 

The funeral cortege arrived at Bos- 
ton about noon, and the sceue at Fan- 
euil Hall is described as one of 
pecitlidr interest, the immense hidl 
being full of sorrowing spectatols, and 
the hall itself being clothed in sombre 
apparel. On the platform were Vice- 
President Wilson and a large num- 
ber of distinguished men. Oppo- 
sit<^ the platform were portraits of the 
late Senator, with the date of his birth 
and death on each. 

Mayor Cobb presided. Among the 
Vice-Presidents were Wendell Phillips. 
Robert C. Winthrop, R. H. Dana, B. 
Curtis, Sidney Bartlett, and Wm. Lloyd 

Services were commenced by the 
reading of an extract from the original 
manuscript of Sumner's eulogy ou 
President Lincoln, which was followed 
by prayer by Rev. Dr. Lathrop. 

'Richard H. Dana then addressed the 
meeting, and oft'ered a series of resolu- 
tions, which were adopted. 

Addiesses were also made by J. B. 
Smith, A. H. Rice, Rev. E. Hale, ex- 
Mayor Gaston, N. P. Banks, and 

The reiiitlinp 1»t in state until Mon- 
day, Maich lGth,'when at 3 o'clock the 
funeral pi-oper took place, attended 
with all tfue military and civil honors. 


Iu Sef temVier, 1872, just before Sena- 
tor Sumuer left fot Europe, he wrote in 
his own hand his will. He bequeathed 
all his papers, manuscripts, and letter- 
book to Henry W. Longfellow, Francis 
E. Balch and Edward L. Pierce as 
trustees ; all his books aud autographs 
to the library of Hai-vind college ; his 
bronzes to his friends of many years, 
Henry W. Longfellow and Dr. Samuel 
G. Howe. He gives to the city of Bos- 
ton, for the Art Museum, his pictures 
and engravings, cxoej't the picture of 
" The Miracle of the fcjlave,' which he 
bequeaths to his friend Joseph B. 
Smith, of Boston. To Mrs. Hannah 
Richmond Jacobs, the only surviving 
sister of his mother, he gives an annuity 
of §300. There is a bequest of S2,000 
to tht^ daughters of Henry W. Long- 
fellow ; S2,<XK) to the daughters of Dr. 
Samuel Howe, audS2,0tX) to the daugh- 
ters of James T. Furness, of Phila- 
delphia, which he says, "I ask tliem to 
acce)it an a token of gratitude for the 
friendsllip thoir parents have shown 

The will directs that the residue of 
his estate shall be distril)iited in two 
equal moieties, one moiety to his sister, 
Mrs. Julia Hastings, of San Francisco, 
Cal.; the other moiety to the president 
and fellows of Harvard College, in trust 
for the benefit of the College bbrary, 
the income being applied to the pur- 
chase of books. In reference to this 
la!5t moiety, the will adds : " This 
berpiest is made iu filial regard to the 
(■ollege. In selecting especially the 
library, I am governed especially by 
the c<>iisideration that all ray life I have 
been a user of books, and, having few 
of my own, I have relied on the lilu-a- 
ries of friends aud on public libraries ; 
so that what I now do is only a return 
for w hat I freely received. " Francis E. 
Balch, of Boston, formerly clerk to the 
Seuat^j Committee on Foreign Rela- 
tions, when Mr. Sumner was chairman 
of that committee, is designated sole 
executor of the will. Mr. Sumner's es- 
tate is valued at $100,000. 

How a rhiladolphia Judge Passes Sen- 

Max Adeler says: They've got a 
Judge iu Philailelphia who goes as far 
in the other direction as a man can and 
yet l>e a Judge, aud this youth has 
teeth. He smiles unceasingly ; he beams 
ou the jury; he simpei-s at the female 
witnesses; he smirks at the lawyers, 
and fairly grins at the pris<iner, whom 
he sentences after this sort of fashion. 
Sh(nving his hindermost tooth he 
laughingly says : 

"Well, Jimmy, the jury have found 
you guilty. And Jimmy, it only remains 
to pass tlie sentence of the court. Stand 
tip, Jimmy." St) Jimmy stands tip and 
faces the smiling Judge with a good 
deal of c<iufidence. 

" Now, Jimmy, in consideration of 
tw«) circumstances your case isn't going 
against you. Y^)ur lawyer has saved 
the court a good deal of trouble in not 
motiouing for a new trial, though I 
don't hesitate to say now that, upon the 
exceptions taken, I shouldn't have been 
able to deny you one. The second miti- 
gating circumstance, Jimmy, is your 
age. It seems a case in which justice 
should be tempered with mercy. (Jim- 
my is in the neighborhood of sixty. ) 
And Jimmy, you have cause for thank- 
fulness that you didn't get on the next 
calendar. 'Hiere are six indictments 
against you, upon each of which you'd 
been safe t«> get twenty years each, and 
a hundred and twenty years is no ftxjl 
of a sentence. But, as I said, I lay 
aside much of the judge when I take 
into consideration but two of these 
counts and sentence you to forty year's 
solitary imprisonment and hard labor 
at Movamensing. Good morning. Don't 
come here again."

out the law to the extent of his ability. 
The Women's Temperance Union of 
Pittsburg held a large aud enthusiastic 
meeting on March 16th. At the close 
of the meeting 300 ladies called upon

The hennery that turns out four dozen 
of eggs daily, at twenty cents per dozen,

Why l*nlHto«'» Knn Oiil. 

A New York farmer iu (luoted as say- 
ing : "Someone asks why it is that 
potatoes so soon run out. Inhere are two 
grand reasons. There are but few pota- 
toes in a hill that are fit for seed. Some 
are overgrown, coarse, rank, and will 
not transmit the original quality. Others 
are undergrown, and not fully developed 
seed. A potato of medium size, perfect 
in all its parts, with change of grotind, 
will produce its like, ad intiiiifiiin. One 
other reason, cutting potatoes bctAveen 
stem aud seed end continually, is wrong. 
It requires the stem and seed end to 
make perfect seed. If cut, cut length- 
wise. Single eyes will run out any 
potatoes. There is no other seed that 
will bear mutilation like the potato ; the 
only wonder is, that it docs not run out

A correspondent of ail agi'icultural 
exchange eays : " This is a new variety 
of spring wheat introduced u few years 
since into this country. As I have had 
experience with it for the last two years, 
I am fully prepared to give it a high 
recommendation, for several important 
reasons. In the first place, it is a very 
hardy wheat, and will do better < )n old 
laud than any other spring variety I 
have sown. He<-ondly, it withstands the 
ravages of the chinch bug with but little 
or no damage. Thirdly', it yields from 
20 to 30 ])ushels to the acre, and never 
requires to be powu more than one 
bushel aud a (juarter to the acre. And 
last, but not least, it has producetl tlie 
best of spring wheat Hour, second to no 
other sjmng wheat I ever raised. 

These are reasons suHicient to induce 
every farmer to procure tlie seeil lor 
next spring's sowing. I have none to sell, 
for all I had over what I needed for my- 
self, was sold from the threshing ma- 
chine at a pvemiiuu, last fall. It yielded 
me last season, 25i bushels to the acre." 

Ih Thvtv -HoiH'v ill Itiillfr-.VIiikiiiK < 

Deacon 8. W. Bufl'um said in a iipeeeh 
recently before the Ncav Hampshire 
Board of Agriculture: "Young men 
leave the farm because they don't see 
how to make it jiay. We farmers are in 
fault. We do not adopt a system to 
show our l(»s;i and gain. We cannot tell 
the cost of pnjduciug a crop, and ilon't, 
therefore, know what pays ami what 
don't. We must determine this matter 
and practice that which will return a 

The speaker then took up the single 
fjuestion of keeping cows for milk. He 
said an ordinary cow would yield about 
1,(KT0 (piarts of milk i>er year, which, 
made into butter and cheese, wotdd not 
average mort^ (hau two cents a quart 
income. This won't pay. Now, increase 
the quantity to 2,(KK> or 2,500, and you 
see a proHt. Add a little more, and the 
result will be, instead of a receipt i>f ^W, 
we get $80. It is tin; same in other de- 
partments. An average price of butter 
with us is but 22 and 25 cents p<<r pound; 
and this don't p:iy. ISIake an improve- 
ment, so that it will average 10 or .50, 
and you see a protit. The average pri»'e 
for butter in towns in certain sections 
in Massachusetts is tiT cents — a price 
that pays. All butler-makers can do 
the sam«', or nearly as well. W<3 can't

of the wheat, but on' the night I had 
finished harrowing there came a fine 
rain, and in a few days, when I went to 
examine, the clover seed was coming up 
beautifully ; and to my surprise none 
of the wheat was killed by the harrow- 
ing, but on the contrary it looked thick- 
er, greener and more luxuriant than in 
the other field. It continued to do well 
aud made twenty bushels of wheat per 
acre, while the other piece only made

harrowing that caused this difference of 
five bushels per acre ; (I think it was)

Ch.U'PED Hands. — Take common 
starch and grind it with a knife until it 
is reduced to the smoothest powder, 
put in a dean tin box, so as to have it 
continmilly at hand for use. Then, 
every time the hands are taken from 
the suds or dishwater, wipe them, aud 
while they are yet damp, rub a pinch of 
the starch thoroughly over them, cov- 
ering the whole surface. The effect is 
magical. The roiigli smarting skin is 
cc^oled, soothed and healed, bringing 
and insuring the greatest degree and 
comfort from this, by no means insignifi- 
cant annoyance. 

To Kkep Tketii in Good Condition. 
— .Vfter each meal use soft wo()den tooth- 
picks, working the tips into fine brush- 
es ; tlien rinse the mouth with water. 
All that is lerpiired to preserve and 
beautify the teeth is simi)ly cleanliness. 
Ordinary tooth bru.shes do not reach 
the interstices ami cavities thoroughly, 
and besides, irritate and hiosen the 
gums. Tooth powder (of every kind, 
without exception) is more or less in- 
jurious to the enamel. The plan re- 
commemled is in vogue among the Arabs 
and Hindoos, both races l>t'ing celebrat- 
ed for their odious fiishion of tinting 

To Mend Lamp Chimneys. — House- 
keepers not too fastidious, of course, 
and of the economical order, may length- 
en out the mortal existence of a lamp 
chimney by keeping a small vial of car- 
riage varnish and api)lyiiig a little with 
a feather or a soft stick to a crack, then 
burning it upon the lamp several even- 
ings before washing it. Tlie heat makes 
it very hard ami durable, though it dis- 
colors the chimney a little ; but will 
save much in this item of expense — 
broken cliimueys. This recipe does 
not apply to the 8500 worth saitl to have 
been made by the Pittsburg man ex- 
pressly for breaking — and filling his 
pock<>ts. 'ITiese are past recovery bv 
any human means we know of, and will 
linger long in the memory of house- 
keepers last winter as among the most 
trying experiences. 

A Remedy kor Wounds. —Take a pan 
or shovel, with burning coals, and 
sprinkle upon them brown sugar, and 
hold the wounded part over the smoke. 
In a few minutes the pain will be allay- 
ed, and recovery proceeds rapidly. In 
my own case, a rusty nail had made a 
bad wound in the bottom of my foot. 
The pain and nervous irritation were 
severe. This was all removed by hold- 
ing it in the smoke f<u- fifteen minutes, 
and I was able to resume my reading iu 
comfort. We have often recommended 
it to others, with like results. Last 
week one of my men had a finger nail 
torn out by a pair of ice tongs. It be- 
came very painful, as was to have been 
expecteil! Held in sugar smoke for 
twenty minutes the jjaiu ceased, aud 
proniises speedy recovery. — .Corn;-

A correspondent of the Farmer's 
Home Journal of Lexington Kentucky, 
writes : 

" We sometimes learn important facts 
in farming by exp-riinentiug, Init uiore 
frequently by accident. Many years 
ago (I'll not say ht)w many), I Inul just 
commenced fanning. I sowed two fields 
of wheat, one of tweidy acres on corn 
stubble and the other, a piece of eight 
acres, on oat stnblde, in a ticld the rest 
of which had been sown in grass (clover 
and timothy). This piece of eight 
acres was not sown in grass, and I plow- 
ed it up in September, and sowed it 
with Meiliterranean Avheat, more for 
the purpose of getting it set in grass 
than to get a crop of wheat. 

I finished sowing this piece abotit the 
Ist of Oetol)er, and in a lew days sowed 
the other field of twenty acres on corn 
stubble, with the same kiml of wheat, 
and on ciU'h I sowed one bushel and a 
half per acre. 

In the following spring, about the 1st 
of 3Iarch, I observi'd that the piece of 
wheat sown on oat stubble looked very 
thin aud badly, while that on the corn 
atubl>le looked green and flourishing. 
For a few days I Avas iindett'rmineil 
whether or not to ploAV up tliis i)iece of 
wheat and sow the ground in oats. But 
as I had eiunigh oat laml beside this 
piece, T d«'t»'rmine«l tc» sow cloAcr see«l 
upon the wheat aiul harrow in. Think- 
ing the wht^at valueless, I Avas not ap- 
prehensiA-e of injuring it by harroAving, 
and even if I did jiann it my other 
piece of Avheat Avhich was on better 
land would yield enough for home use. 
We neA'cr sokl any AAheat in those days, 
as it was only Avorth forty to fifty cents 
per pushel. On the Hlh of starch I 
finish<*d sowing my cl<»\'cr seed on this 
piece of wheat, aud on the 10th of 
March finished harrowing it both Avays. 
I used a large heavy harrow with ahaip

Forest and Stream sjtys that New- 
foundland holds a |)osition of peculiar 
interest to the people of the «'<mtinent, 
for upon it rests one end of the Atlan- 
ti<' cable and across it passes the single 
land wire which, coiuiei-ting Avith the 
cable, ]»uts the business Avorld tinder 
constant tribute, and dictates the cost 
of telegraphic messages. At this re- 
mote i)lace. North ami South America 
on one side, and Europe, Asia and 
Africa on the other, must all pay toll 
for their correspondciu'c ; and even 
though »'ablcs should girdh' the Avorld, 
it is still at NcAvfotuidland they arc 
called up<»n t^> stand and deliA-er. The 
remote cause of all this'is that on April 
15, IS51, an agreement was entered into 
between the Legislature of N»>Avfound- 
land and the " New York, Newfound- 
land, and London Telegraph Company," 
l»v Avhicli the Li'gislature granted to 
this «'ompany uhe exclusive right to

and for a i»eriod of fifty years exclusiA'C 
right AA-as to b»' allowcil to build a tele-

sometimes the happiest ell'ects) the 
Legislature u11oav«>«1 themselves a fortu- 
nat»^ loophole, having insert«'d this pro- 
viso that at the expiration of twenty 
years, if they thought avcH of it, they 
niight buy l»ack from the New York, 
Newfoundiand, and Loiuhm Telegraph 
Company the telegraph line, paying a 
fair price for the Avires, jxdes, cables, 
&c. NoAv, on the 15th of April, 1S74, 
exactly the tAAcnty years expire, and 
the Legislatuiv are goinp to take back 
the land telegraph line into their oAvn 
hands. Of course, as this line has so 
far controlled all the cable lines, it has 
prcAcnted any other cables having their 
ends at Newtoiimlland. In fact it was 
the pigmy of a land telegraph which 
commandeil the situation. Legal de-

is well to mention that this medicine is 
compotmded of root«, herbs, and flow-
